Halloween and It is Origin
Halloween, one of the most awaited days of the year, comes around October 31 and brings with its happiness and festivities. From brainstorming Halloween costumes to carving Jack O’ Lanterns and eating unfathomable amounts of candies with the kids, Halloween gives everyone a chance to dress up while bringing out their creativity, go trick or treating and have fun. At the same time, it is an excellent opportunity for the parents to take a break from their kids’ responsibilities and enjoy this holiday to the fullest.
As far as the history of Halloween is concerned, it is much older than you might think it is and dates to the Celtic festival of Samhain. It was believed that the dead could return on this festival and mix up with the living. The Celts used to dress up, wear animal skins or their heads. Knowing its history will only make it more meaningful and more fun for you. The word Halloween literally comes from “All Hallows Evening.” Over time, this word shortened to Halloween. Hallows means saint, and this day is celebrated to pay homage to the saints. It also involves praying for the dead and the martyred, and its why Halloween’s famous for being scary and eerie.
Halloween Contact Lenses
Using contact lenses at Halloween is quite common because nobody wants to wear glasses with their Halloween costume and ruin the whole look. Contact lenses, on the other hand, are extremely comfortable and look dazzling with your costumes and makeup looks. Halloween costume lenses come in all colors and designs, just according to your Halloween costume. There are black and white, whiteout, icy blue, pearl green and many other colours that they come in.
Even though contact lenses are pretty easy to handle and much more comfortable than glasses, there are some things that one needs to be careful about when wearing them. Before inserting contact lenses washing your hands thoroughly is a must and before taking them out as well. You do not want soap or any other cleaning agent coming in contact with the lens itself, only the prescribed solution. Do not go near the fire when you are wearing contact lenses because it could make them stick to your eye. Last but not least, never share your contact lenses with a friend and always keep them moist in their solution.
