Costumes For All Ages

Feb
Comments Off |  Posted by |  Category:Halloween costumes

Costumes For All Ages

Costumes refer to distinctive style of clothing worn by particular classes or people from specific periods of time.  Mardi Gras has it’s own history, but where did all begin in general?

At the time of substantial Irish and Scottish immigration to North America in the late 19th century, Halloween had a strong tradition of “guising” children in Ireland and Scotland disguised in costumes going from door to door requesting food or coins.

The earliest known reference to ritual begging on Halloween in English speaking North America occurs in 1911, when a newspaper in Kingston, Ontario reported that it was normal for the smaller children to go street “guising” on Halloween between 6 and 7 p.m., visiting shops and neighbors to be rewarded with nuts and candies for their rhymes and songs.

The main event for children of modern Halloween in the United States and Canada is trick-or-treating, in which children disguise themselves in costumes and go door to door in their neighborhoods, ringing each doorbell and yelling “Trick or treat!” to solicit a gift of candy or similar items.

The commercialization of Halloween in the United States did not start until the 20th century, beginning perhaps with Halloween postcards (featuring hundreds of designs), which were most popular between 1905 and 1915.

Dennison Manufacturing Company (which published its first Halloween catalog in 1909) and the Beistle Company were pioneers in commercially made Halloween decorations, particularly die-cut paper items.

Now – Mardi Gras Time

Now – Mardi Gras Time

Yep! Valetine‘s Days is still a few days off, but in order to prepare for Mardi Gras, we’ve decided to start a little early.

Purple, green and gold costumes in all combinations of velvet, metallic fabrics and quality materials are what you will find when you shop here for Mardi Gras costumes. Halloween is now the United States’ second most popular holiday (after Christmas) for decorating; the sale of candy and costumes is also extremely common during the holiday, which is marketed to children and adults alike.

Likewise, Chapel Hill, NC, site of the University of North Carolina, has a notorious downtown street party which in 2013 drew a crowd estimated at 80,000 on downtown Franklin Street, in a town with a population of just 54,000.

 There are some similarities between Mardi Gras, whose origin is in New Orleans, and Halloween and it’s special nights in other cities.

In Detroit, Michigan, the night before Halloween is referred to as Devil’s Night, and for many years involved petty vandalism by children and teens, such as rubbing soap or wax on car windows or throwing eggs at houses.

Halloween in Mexico begins three days of consecutive holidays, as it is followed by All Saints’ Day, which also marks the beginning of the two day celebration of the Day of the Dead or the Da de los Muertos.

Despite many American media influences (including television sit-coms and The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror and its sequels), Halloween is frowned upon by some due to its having little relevance to Australian culture.

On Halloween night, horror films and horror-themed TV episodes are traditionally aired, and currently, Halloween private parties are more commonly held than actual “trick-or-treating”, however both are still observed.
