The Feast of Samhain and the History of HalloweenHalloween is observed most notably by young children dressing in supernatural costumes and fancy dress and going from door to door "trick or treating". A long established tradition in the United States, it only really became more established in the United Kingdom after featuring heavilly in the film ET The Extraterrestrial.
Halloween or The Feast of All Hallows Eve precedes All Hallows Day, a day of religious festivities and observance. Traditionally the Celts of Britain and Ireland would celebrate "Samhain", leaving food offerings on their doorsteps in reverence of the dead, and would wear masks to fool the spirits into believeing that they too were dead spirits, and so not harm them.
Carved jack-o-lanterns lit from inside by candles are one of the most enduring images of Halloween.
DecorYour Halloween Night would not be complete without some sinister decor around the bar. Cobwebs, pumpkin lanterns and dangling spiders. Your bar staff might want to join in the spirit of the evening and dress as seductive vampires, zombies and other nightmare creatures. It all adds to the ambience and makes your evening memorable for your customers.
And why not take the opportunity to humiliate some of your more foolhardy punters with an apple bobbing contest - where they have to fish bobbing toffee apples from a barrel or bucket of water using only their teeth.
Halloween FoodsAdd a bit of fun to the evening by providing a buffet of ghoulish grub. You could provide home made buns and cakes laced with green or red colouring, and green or red jelly. Add a horrific twist to more traditional foods - sausages could be witches fingers, boiled eggs could be boiled eyeballs etc. let you imagination run riot.
