5 Spooky Recipes For Your Halloween Party

5 Spooky Recipes For Your Halloween Party

Since Halloween lands on a Tuesday this year, we can only assume that most of the festivities will be happening this weekend. Whether you are hosting a party or going to a friend’s house, it’s best to get festive with your food. Have a little fun with presentation to make some deliciously themed appetizers or snacks.

 

A Little History:

Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which celebrated the New Year on November 1st. This day also marked the end of the summer harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold, haunting winter months. In the 8th Century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as a day to honor all saints, known as All Saints Day. The evening before, October 31st, became known as All Hallows Eve and later as Halloween. People carve pumpkins, trick or treat, eat candy, dress up in costumes, and make awesome appetizers courtesy of Dherbs.com ;)
