The history of...Orange & Hallowe'en!

One of the strongest colours associated with Hallowe'en is orange!  Next to black, these colours are thought to go back, way back to the celtic festivities and maybe expressions of the fires & candles that were lit to welcome the chilly, black winter that lay ahead.  Through the evolution of time, other colours have worked their way into this festive commercial holiday.  Bring in white, green, red and purple.  There could be white ghouls soaring around, blood of the deepest red oozing from zombies and purple ribbons to adorn witches' hats!
