Halloween is originally an ancient Celtic holiday. The Celtic people believed that on October 31st the living and dead world overlapped. They also celebrated this day as being the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. Furthermore, they wore mask and costumes to appease spirits. Today, Halloween is still celebrated. How do you celebrate Halloween ? Halloween always remind me of Trick-or-treating, candy and fun for the kids. However, I believe you’re never to old to put on a costume and celebrate Halloween.
This year I held my 5th Annual Halloween Party at Carlyle at the Palace. The party was a huge success ! I dressed up as Miss America for the party. I wore a custom made sash and a tiara with a black gown. All the guests looked great and were in the Halloween spirit. Some of my favourite costumes were a unicorn, Maleficient, and Superman.
This year at the party we held a Chinese auction. We gave away ten baskets of goodies to the guests. The baskets feature a variety of items from sangria to baby bottles, to dog treats. We also had great hors d’ouerves this year. One highlight of this year’s party was a performance by music artist Giorgio Trovato. Giorgio Trovato rocked the party as he performed his hit songs for the crowd. The DJ was great and everyone danced all night.
Thanks to everyone who came and if you did not I hope to see you there next year.
