Halloween at Drusillas Park
Shriek Week at Drusillas Park!

Stake out the eerie events taking place between Saturday 22nd October and Sunday 30th October 2016 at Shriek Week. Creep though the corridors of the Haunted Heights castle but keep your eyes peeled for sin sisters Hocus and Pocus! Try to find the ancient lost Mummy missing from the tomb as you venture through Eden’s Eye maze and then scuttle along to meet some real mini-monsters at the Creepy Crawly animal encounters. The Gruffalo will also make a special guest appearance on Wednesday 26th October and Hello Kitty on Thursday 27th October.

With all this, plus the usual animal magic, it’s well worth jumping on your broomstick for - you’re sure to have a fang-tasic time!

Did You Know - The real reason why costumes are worn on ? While millions of us around the world wear on the 31st of October very few actually know where the tradition actually stems from. The Ancient Celts believed that the gate between the worlds of the living and the dead was opened on the eve of New Years. - October 31st. The souls of the dead could cross onto the plain of the living for one day only, as . The only problem with this was that some of these ghosts were not too pleasant! They would destroy crops, houses and were even believed to murder those amongst the living who had befallen them during their lifetimes. In order to disguise themselves from these malevolent ghosts the Celts would don made from Animal skins and heads! By doing this it was believed that the ghost would not be able to recognise them as living and believe that they too were spirits. So, there you have it, in the past costumes were worn for self-preservation while today we just wear them for fun!

ALL YOU NEED FOR A GREAT HALLOWEEN PARTY

Did you know - That Halloween is older than Christmas? dates back over 2000 years, to the times of the ancient Celts. They lived in an area which today makes up the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Northern France. The Celtic name of the holiday that we now celebrate as Halloween was Samhain (pronounced “sow-in”). However this name varied depending on regions -  In Wales the name of the holiday was Hollantide, in Cornwall it was known as Allantide; and in Brittany it was called Kala-Goanv.

The 19th century. This period saw the growth of Samhain from a small paegan festival into the world-wide celebration that marks today. The 19th Century was characterized with a new wave of immigrants from Europe, particularly the immigrants from Ireland, who were mainly responsible for developing the popular version of Halloween that we celebrate today. Taking inspiration from Irish and English traditions, newly arriving Americans began to dress up in different costumes: They also developed on the tradition of "souling" a tradition where Irish peasants would exchange cakes (soul cakes) for food or money. Of course when the Irish arrived in the new land thigs were not exactly easy for them and the harmless tradition became decisively more aggressive with tricks (vandalism) played on those unwilling to give treats. This pastime is where the tradition of comes from. The 20th century changed Halloween from a mildly celebrated harvest celebration into a full blown international holiday. At the beginning of the century, were organized for both children and adults. Parties focused on foods of the season, games, and festive , but the real explosion in the popularity of the holiday came in the 1950's - when the Baby Boomers were just... babies. From that point on Halloween has grown from strength to strength.
