often wonder how we all got started dressing up
on October 31 and lavishing our homes with all
types of Halloween Décor.
Dating back to the time of the early Celtic festival
of Samhain, Halloween has been a holiday that
included food and costumes. For Americans, the
tradition of "trick-or-treating" most
likely stems from the English All Souls' Day parades.
During the festivities, poor citizens would beg
for food and families would give them pastries
called "soul cakes" in return for their
promise to pray for the family's dead relatives.
The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged
by the church as a way to replace the ancient
practice of leaving food and wine for roaming
The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween
has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of
years ago, when winters were uncertain and frightening,
food supplies often ran low. On Halloween, people
believed that ghosts came back to the earthly
world and thought that they would encounter them
if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized,
people would wear masks when they left their homes
after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them
for fellow spirits. To keep ghosts away from their
houses, people would place bowls of food outside
their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent
them from attempting to enter.
Regardless of its roots, Halloween has grown
to be one of the biggest holidays celebrated in
the US. As such, Statue.com is proud to offer

statues and sculptures that capture the essence
of Halloween fun. From witches to spooky ghosts,
