Halloween is all about dressing up in fancy costumes, catching up with friends and basically, having a ball of a time here in Australia. You also do not want to be caught by surprise or worse, run out of candies, when those adorable kids in their monster and ghoulish costumes come trick and treating at your doorstep!
Halloween may seem all nice and good fun now but did you know that it originated from something much darker? The orgin of Halloween can be traced back all the way to 2,000 years ago to this ancient pagan festival (Samhain) that was celebrated by the Celtic People. They believed that during Samhain, the dead will walk amongst the living, and that the living can visit the dead as well during this festival. Apparently, the Celts wore ghoulish costumes to trick the dead into believing that they were one of them and that was how the tradition got passed down, albeit for different reasons in modern times.
So now that you know your Halloween history, it is time to get down to some serious online shopping and make sure that you are well stocked for the occasion!
If you are too cool to go full monster costume for Halloween, why not consider this uber cool Halloween cat t-shirt that fits the occasion as well. You get the best of both worlds, i.e. getting into the mood for Halloween and yet still enjoying the cool comfort of a 100% cotton t-shirt. You get the last laugh too when you see your friends getting soaked in their own sweat at the end of the night. Let's not forget how humid Singapore is and not everyone can rock a full-on monster or ghostly costume in this crazy heat.
