The History of Halloween
The word 'Halloween' comes from medieval England's All Hallows' Eve, and is held the day before All Saints' Day. This unique occasion dates back to pre-Christian Celtic beliefs. It was thought that in the very beginning of November evil spirits would roam the Earth in response to the diminishing sunlight and onset of Winter. Thus, festivals were held where sweets and food were offered, and people dressed up as evil spirits to ward off the ghosts and prevent themselves from being haunted and possessed.
The Business of Halloween
If you are a retailer, this is a great time of year to sell your Halloween party and decorating ware. But what about the average business who doesn't normally have Halloween products?
Here are a few Halloween ideas for everyone:
- Send a Halloween eCard offering a fun, easy Halloween recipe like cupcakes with orange and purple swirl frosting topped with colored sugar.
- Buy a giant pumpkin, paint it gold and put your company name and/or logo on it. Put it in the foyer of your office building and have people guess the weight of the pumpkin.
- Plan an elegant (not scary) Halloween office party. Invite clients and prospects and ask them to bring their kids for trick or treating. Make sure there is lots of food, pretty Halloween decorations and easy games like guess how many candy corn are in the bowl.
- Send Halloween eCards to office mates to brighten their day! A happy employee is a productive employee!
