Come one, come all! October is approaching! You know what that means? Longer nights, cooler weather, and creepier, ghastly books to look forward to. What’s not to love about this month! Plus, there’s candy!

That all goes to say, that Moriah and I love Halloween! We love books (obviously) and decided to combine the two!

We want you to join in, too! Below, is the graphic that was created for the days. Candace and I split the days of October and came up with the themes. Save the graphic and share it on every social media site you own! Tag us in your daily posts and make sure you use the hashtag #BattyBookMonth so we’re sure to see all of your pictures! We will be picking our favorites each week and sharing them as well.

For a little history lesson, the Celtic holiday was a celebration of the end of a full cycle. This was the time that the crops were taken in, cattle was brought closer into the towns, and signaled the first day of winter, November 1st. The day before, Samhain, was the time that the Celtic people believed the veil separating the mortal realm and the other side was the thinnest, the time when the dead could walk among the living. As a result, the Celts built bonfires to ward off evil spirits and to help them move on, as well as riding themselves of demons, fairies, ghouls, and other supernatural creatures. The Christians tried to eradicate the Celtic holiday and created All Saints Day to honor the saints on November 1st.

The Celtic tradition of Samhain never died out completely, and the celebration of All Hallows Eve began. Food and drink was left on doorsteps to coerce the supernatural beings into leaving the houses along. Soon, people started to dress up as the spirits and supernatural beings and went house to house for asking for “treats.”
