Halloween has roots going as far back as the Celtic Samhain. For me, Halloween has always been the night before All Souls Day, a day where we placed flowers on the graves of our departed relatives. The aspect of dressing in costume goes back to when the Catholic Church encouraged children to dress as their patron saint. Many people where I live think of Halloween as an evil celebration and refuse to take part, instead having a Harvest Festival. To each his/her own. We’ll still be handing out candy to the little kids who come by our home.
Here’s how one homeowner in Riverside, CA lights up the night with his annual Halloween Light Show. This year one of the songs is Party Rock, once of my daughter’s favorites. If you can’t watch the video below, you can access it directly on YouTube.
He also put together a number with This is Halloween and I have to admit, this guy could take on Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
Here’s one from the West family in Odessa, Texas. Anyone up for a little Alice Cooper?
Kind of a fun way to commemorate the night of Trick or Treating. If you do decide to go out door to door with your children, be sure to observe a few Halloween safety tips.
