Halloween is a frightfully fun holiday that our spooktacular Halloween products creep out to celebrate. Since we can't resist letting our captivating products out to play we thought we'd share them with you. 

Originating from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people lit bonfires and wore costumes to ward off ghosts, Halloween has a long history. Celts celebrated New Year on November 1st and believed that on the last night of the year the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. Something that reminds us of Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein where Frankenstein messed with the line between living and dead. We've embraced our inner mad crafters and made a creature from our arresting products.

In the eighth century, Pope Gregory made the 1st November a time to honour all the saints. All Saints Day soon incorporated some Samhain traditions. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and eventually Halloween. As time went on Halloween became the day we recognise. A day of activities like festive gatherings, wearing costumes, trick or treating, eating treats and carving pumpkins.

As much as we love our enchanting Pumpkin Charms we couldn't resist creating our own pumpkin for Halloween. So meet Peter the pumpkin, a charming fellow made from Czech Crystals to light up the dark Halloween night. Peter and all of us at Charming Beads hope you have a frightfully fun Halloween.
