BREAKING NEWS 🚨 Marketing and #branding tips for W22/23: A Samhain #Celebration theme 🐺
Originated with the ancient Celtic pagan festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in), Halloween lends itself as inspiration for novel beauty looks and formulations. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, mostly in the area that is now Ireland, the UK, and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1st. This day marked the end of summer and harvest, and the beginning of winter. It was a time of spiritual importance to the Celts, who believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. Thus, on the night of October 31st they celebrated Samhain, mingling with the ghosts of the dead who had returned to earth.
