It’s almost Halloween and the time of year we all think of ghouls, goblins, witches and warlocks, sweets and treats!
Halloween is celebrated each year on October 31, but is rooted in older European traditions. It seems to have begun with Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival in which bonfires and costumes were believed to keep ghosts at bay. Pope Gregory III later designated November 1 as a time to honor the saints (All Saints Day) and this celebration incorporated some of the older Celtic traditions. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween.
Over time, Halloween evolved to include fun activities such as trick-or-treating and carving jack-o-lanterns. It is still celebrated in many countries around the world. Whether you have little ones going out to join into the festivities or you are attending a party or other celebrations, Halloween is often associated with dressing in costumes –and of course, with sweet treats!
In honour of this taste for treats, we thought we would provide a few other ways to indulge your sweet tooth. Send a delectable Sweets Hampers to your friends and loved ones and they won’t even have to leave the house to enjoy some yummy decadence. Best of all: these hampers are available year-round (and you don’t have to be in costume to order one).
