Halloween is less than a month away, if you want your company to celebrate you need to stock up on your printed merchandise quickly.
Halloween is believed to have originated in the ninth Century Europe, where they believed that once you died you soul would remain in limbo. To send the souls on their way up to Heaven, they would go 'souling' on the 31st October every year. This is believed to have involved walking through the village handing out cakes to Christians. In return, the Christians would promise to pray for their lost relatives. This is one place trick or treating is believed to have come from. It could also have originated from old Irish peasants who would go door to door collecting bread, eggs and money in preparation for the festival of St Columb Kill. However trick or treating came about, it is an important part of the Halloween holiday.
