Halloween decorations, have been used since the first festival was celebrated. Celts, hung wreathes of blackberries at the entrances of their homes, to protect themselves from evil spirits, during their ancient festival of Samhain. During the eighth century Pope Gregory lll, decreed that the festival should become the central part of a Christian calendar. Renamed All Hallows’ Eve, the prelude to the holy festival of ‘All Hallows’ Day.’ The festival still retained many of the pagan tradition, including decorative pieces to intended to guard and protect.
As the celebration became more associated with Christian church, decorations of a more spiritual nature became increasingly popular, with figurines of angels and blessed candles. Soon these additions were to be found in homes, not just on All Hallows’ Eve, but throughout the year.
Carved lanterns, were also seen to have supernatural protective powers, during the festival of Samhain, grotesque faces were carved into turnips, to ward off evil spirits. Throughout the passing centuries, this tradition grew in popularity, and when the story spread to America, pumpkins quickly replaced the turnip. Pumpkins were believed to symbolise good fortune, a plentiful harvest and good health.
