Halloween Treats

Halloween Treats

September 14, 2021

The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating treats.

Even in Australia the tradition is followed even though nowhere as it is in the United States of America. 

Did you know? One quarter of all the candy sold annually in the U.S. is purchased for Halloween.

Here at Cakes By Laura we love any excuse to celebrate with sweet treats. Look out of our Halloween Treats coming soon.
