Halloween is celebrated in many countries and had its pagan festival origins in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. It was believed that the dead walked among us during Halloween and in an effort to avoid any harm from the spirits many thought it prudent to dress in costumes and venture outside.
There are many symbols and colours associated with Halloween but the most popular colours are black, pumpkin yellow or orange with symbols such as black cats, bats, lanterns, ghosts, wizards, witches, spirits, spiders and many other horror characters.
