The ancient Celtic festival of Samhain is considered to be the origins of Halloween. The Celts lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In the late 1800s, there was a move in America to mold Halloween into a holiday more about community and neighborly get-togethers than about ghosts, pranks and witchcraft. At the turn of the century, Halloween parties for both children and adults became the most common way to celebrate the day. Parties focused on games, foods of the season and festive costumes. Parents were encouraged by newspapers and community leaders to take anything “frightening” or “grotesque” out of Halloween celebrations. Because of these efforts, Halloween lost most of its superstitious and religious overtones by the beginning of the twentieth century. Our team decided to present the loving foodies of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar the Food fest of Halloween, in it’s truest sprit. Starting right from the spookatacular and delicacies to an amazingly spooktacular Haunted house set-up at Koba Circle. We are delighted by the response which was twice as amazing as our last year’s celebrations and thank you all for sharing the Shamiyana Halloween fest moment and making it such a huge success.
Today is the last evening of the fun but for loving foodies of the region we already have a special delicious moment planned for this New Year already!!!
