7 Halloween Decors for Your Home Garage
November 02, 2021
It’s only a matter of days before kids knock on your door and go Trick-or-Treating. Even though these kids are just looking to collect treats, you wouldn’t want them to be skipping on your house because it looks boring from the outside. Halloween is one of those holidays that you either go overboard or don’t decorate your house at all. But first, why do kids go trick-or-treating anyway every evening of October 31st? Kids knocking on doors and asking for treats has been a century-old tradition in many countries including the United States. Halloween can be traced back to pre-Christian times where the Celts celebrate the Celtic festival of Samhain every October 21. The Celts believed that on this day, the dead return to Earth so as a welcome, the living would pay homage to them by lighting bonfires and offering sacrifices. During the ninth century, rich families would give soul cakes to the poor who visit them in their houses and the poor would pray for the souls of their dead relatives in return. The poor were later replaced by children who asked for gifts in the form of money, ale, or food. Young people in Ireland and Scotland would dress up in costumes, knock on doors and perform a “trick” (a song, poem, or a joke) in exchange for a “treat.” Irish immigrants brought the tradition to the United States in the 1840s. Halloween pranks took over in the 1920s that people believed catapulted “trick-or-treating” as a tradition in the 1930s. World War II temporarily put it to a halt and it was during the postwar baby boomer times that the fame of Halloween was reclaimed. Trick-or-treating was one of the traditions that stayed. Today, statistics show that over $2.6 billion is spent every Halloween, marking the day as the country’s second-largest commercial holiday. So don’t be a killjoy and make sure to prepare your house for Halloween. One area you could decorate is your home’s garage. This is probably one of the only few days in a year that your garage can hold attention and be the house’s eye candy. Before decorating, the first step is to make sure there is ample space in your garage. You can only do this by organizing and decluttering the space.
