Year after year bursts with more force than the previous year the famous Halloween, or All Saints' Day Eve. Although not much has been celebrated in our country until relatively recently, it is an ancient festival.
This celebration is of Celtic origin and has the peculiarity of keeping its name in all languages. In ancient times, when the samhain night 2000 years ago, the Celts turned off the lights and hoped that death would not touch their houses. It was believed that during the night spirits returned to earth to possess the living. So you had to go unnoticed and dress in black so that the dead could continue on their way. As you can see, the essence of Halloween remains and even evolves towards a more positive and fun reality.
And it is that the Americans have not only left us jeans and Coca-Cola. Now we can't live without Halloween either. Above all, children. Those crazy little ones are very smart and of course, left to choose between the gloomy and cold day of All Saints or the hilarious Halloween Well, the second wins. And we are not surprised. How much healthy envy we have all felt as children when we saw those demonic movies. The pumpkin, the costume, the sweets ... we honestly have nothing to do with Halloween.
What to do on Halloween?
Also, not only the little ones can enjoy Halloween. We adults can also do some terrifyingly fun activities. You sign up? From our online wine shop We have prepared a list with 4 plans to enjoy like never before.
1. Watch a scary movie at night
Indeed. How could it be otherwise, October 31 is the ideal day to enjoy a movie in the dark at night. Prepare the table with the pumpkin full of trinkets and go back to your adolescence at times. We suggest some titles: "Trick or treat: Horror on Halloween", "Bitelchús" or "zombies party".
2. Dress up yes or yes
Is there anything cooler in movies than when they dress up and go to the neighbors to ask for candy? Not! The "trick or treat" has become an instant classic. If you are lucky enough to have children at home, it will be a time of maximum fun. And if there are no children, bring out your inner child and organize a group video call to play at being Wednesday, Frankenstein and CIA.
3. Decorate your house
You are right. You already have the task to turn your home into the house of terror. You can entertain yourself with crafts of all kinds: making spiders, decorating the pumpkin, painting witches and ghosts…. Come on, we have already done it and we can assure you that it is a hilarious plan.
4. Dinner of terror
It is the day to play with the imagination. A soup that can become the magic potion or some holy bones for dessert can put the finishing touch to a memorable dinner. We help you with glorious "blood" and at the height of the occasion. Kalamity, our most delicious and sinister wine at the same time. Kalamity was born in 2014 by the admiration of Bodegas Oxer Bastegieta towards Shakespeare. On its label you can read the Latin quote "Honi soit qui mal y pense" which means dishonor befall him who thinks badly. It is a text from the play "The Kingdom of King Edward III." Everything is said. To provide!
