Halloween Day 2021
History of Halloween
Halloween is celebrated worldwide on October 31. People in European & American countries celebrate it on the last day of harvest.
It is an ancient belief that the wall between living & dead becomes narrow during this time & they come back to earth to live life again.
Another belief is that some unholy spirits can damage crops after landing on the earth. So, to avoid any damage, people light bonfires and wear masks to please the wicked spirits.
How is Halloween celebrated worldwide?
During this time, people go door to door and ask for food in exchange for a poem or song dressed in costumes. People believe that if they would dress up & mimic as spirits, they would be safe & protected from the spirits.
The most common activities include - trick or treating, attending halloween costume parties, playing pranks, making jack-o-lanterns (carved pumpkins).
People also decorate cemeteries & leave food out for visiting spirits. A Halloween parade is also a popular way to celebrate the event in many countries where you have to enroll in advance to take part in the halloween parade.
Halloween in Indian scenario
Nowadays due to the increased exposure to global culture & social media, a young Indian generation is aware of halloween.
Also, Indian people want to have a feel of the festivals that people in other countries celebrate.
As a result, many Indian hotels in metro cities organize theme-based Halloween parties. Even many MNCs encourage their employees to participate in in-office halloween parties.
eCommerce shopping trends during Halloween
In some countries, it is observed that consumer spending on Halloween is more spirited than other key holidays on the retail calendar, outpacing even Valentine’s Day in some categories.
Last year due to the pandemic, halloween parties in India had taken a backseat. The demand for Halloween props was much lesser & smaller items were sold out more than bigger props. As many covid restrictions are lifted up now, many retailers & the eCommerce industry have started attracting customers.
