Halloween has become bigger in the UK over the years and it made me wonder how it started. So I decided to do the one thing any self-respecting modern woman would do and I Googled it!

I found this great article on The Telegraph “What’s the story behind Halloween and why do children trick or treat”. There is a brilliant video that explains the origins of Halloween and also Trick or treating, but read the whole article as it is packed with interesting facts. I learnt that what I thought was an American tradition seems to be more European, originating in Celtic Britain.

The article also shows some great Celebrity Halloween costumes and also some startling figures that shows what big business Halloween now is.

Whatever the reason, we at Pistachio use it as a great excuse to dress up and have a party. We love it so much we created a small Halloween amination we created to give a sneak peek to our new brand.
