The love story between biscuits and Halloween

There are many ways to celebrate Halloween, and in every part of the world, they are different given that everyone follows a different tradition from the very beginnings of Halloween to the present day, which is long and rich. The Halloween tradition dates back to the time of the antiquated Celtic celebration of Samhain when people would light huge fires and wear ensembles to avoid bad ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III assigned November 1 as an opportunity to respect all holy people. Before long, All Saints Day fused a portion of the practices of Samhain.

The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over the long haul, Halloween developed into a day of exercises like going house to house asking for candy, cutting jack-o-lights, merry get-togethers, wearing outfits, and eating treats.

Given that the pandemic has greatly changed our entire way of life, the changes have also been reflected in the ways Halloween is celebrated, and here is what these changes have led to and what trends they have set. Social networks have greatly influenced the setting of trends in the biscuit industry and thus the choice of cookies that we will bake for any event, including Halloween. 

Focus on photogenicity

Since we spend more time at home and even working from home, we are more on social networks, so we look at photos of various works and homemade recipes that we will try ourselves. Also, when we try some recipe, who wouldn't resist taking a photo of their sweet cookies and posting them on social media. Trends are growing, and people are paying more and more attention to how their treat looks. Here are ideas for photogenic (but of course, delicious) Halloween cookies!

How are individuals finding "Treats Moments" during the pandemic?

It's valid — customers are searching briefly for satisfaction in this unsure and surprising time of the pandemic. Also, chocolate and candy assume an extraordinary part in working with that. The dessert shop class has been tough in this COVID-19 climate, as shoppers are truly accepting the fun and novel nature of sweet items.

In the same way as other occasions this year, buyers are adjusting to observe Halloween in new ways. Like last year, the original focus is on a celebration at home that includes costume and biscuit baking process, and trying out different recipes.

Did you know? Fun facts about Halloween

  1. Much of the credit for expanding Halloween celebrations go to director John Carpenter, who created a horror film of the same name – Halloween
  2. One-quarter of all the candy sold annually in the U.S. is purchased for Halloween.
  3. ''Trick or treat'' first story: The ancient Celts celebrated November 7 as the beginning of the new year, and the celebration was dedicated to the sun god but also the lord of death (Samhain). They believed that during the full moon, and most often the night before the day of the dead, the dead leave their graves, and briefly come to Earth again and visit their homes, so the living, frightened by the possibility of meeting the dead, covered themselves with terrifying masks and made great noise – so this explains today's tradition of ''trick or treat''

Trivia about celebrating Halloween: Finding your true love

Specifically, many had to do with assisting young ladies with distinguishing their future spouses and consoling them that they would sometime in the not-so-distant future—with karma, by next Halloween—be engaged.

  • In Scotland, soothsayers suggested that a qualified young lady name a hazelnut for every one of her admirers and afterward throw the nuts into the chimney. The nut that consumed to remains as opposed to popping or detonating, the story went, addressed the young lady's future spouse. (In certain variants of this legend, the inverse was valid: The nut that consumed with smoldering heat represented an adoration that would not endure.)
  • Another story had it that if a young lady ate a sweet blend made out of pecans, hazelnuts, and nutmeg before bed on Halloween night she would dream about her future spouse.

As many as different stories unite the celebration of Halloween - one thing is for sure, each includes treats in some form, and most often these are our beloved different biscuit types.
