Halloween 2021: 10 Homemade Desserts That are So Simple, It’s Scary!


Halloween 2021 is creeping up on us, and this year, we’ve got no tricks up our sleeves, just treats. So what is Halloween? It’s the time of celebration and superstition, a time to honour all saints and martyrs, making it a spooktacular holiday. Initially referred to as Hallows’ Eve, Halloween falls on the night of 31st October, which is the eve of All Saints’ Day (November 1st). It is thought to have originated in the Celtic fringes of Britain, and was adapted by Christian traditions, immigrants’ conventions and an insatiable desire for sweets. During the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain i.e. summer’s end, people would light bonfires and don their scariest outfits to ward off roaming ghosts and spirits. It started during the 16th century in Ireland, Scotland and Wales where people went door-to-door asking for food in exchange for a poem or song. In a number of countries around the world today, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people still continue to usher in the winter season with parties, costumes, sweet treats and much fervour. Children, especially in the United States look forward to this holiday all year long, in anticipation of trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and getting all decked up as witches, zombies and what not. But we have a confession to make, Halloween’s party isn’t just for the kiddos! Adults dig ghostly decorations, clever costumes, and ghoulishly inspired munchies too.
