HALLOWEEN IN KENYA: FRIGHT NIGHT

Halloween is finally here with us. It’s the perfect time of the year for fun lovers to wear costumes and camouflage into anything and everything they like. Halloween, in Kenya, is not a holiday, but elsewhere it is celebrated each year on October 31st and has been dogged by negative publicity, being associated with Satanism and gothic culture. However, the factual, historical origins of this day prove that nothing could be further from the truth.

Halloween in Kenya. A spooky, creative photo with a Halloween theme by Versatile Photographers. This year, the festival will be celebrated at the Village Market.

The Halloween holiday originated from the 8th Century “All Hallows Eve” which was the day before All Saints Day, marked on November the 1st. It was partly borrowed from Celtic culture and was a borderline to mark the end of summer and the beginning of winter. The habit of wearing costumes of angels, saints and devils were meant to ward off ghosts and bad spirits. It is this activity associated with the festival that been misunderstood and sheds a negative light on the holiday. Nonetheless, this is how Halloween was born and has evolved over the years into what it is today.

    First off I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
