Videos Dark Universe Halloween Season: The Real Story Of Halloween Published 2 years ago on October 3, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Another edition to our Dark Universe Halloween Season is an interesting, but creepy documentary about the haunting night. If you’ve always wanted to know the real story of Halloween, then this is the perfect history documentary for you. We all love eerie tales about Ghosts, Witches, and Monsters. Now it’s time to turn off the lights, get yourself a hot drink, and enjoy the show! About the documentary: “Halloween began centuries ago as a pagan holiday that honored the dead that warned of a netherworld of spirits and ghosts. Today, Halloween has morphed into a day for breaking rules, pushing boundaries and wearing disguises. But Halloween remains a time for us to deal with our own mortality. Our modern traditions have ancient roots – people were going door to door and begging for treats as far back as the Middle Ages. We may think our Halloweens are crazy, but Halloweens past have been wilder and more dangerous than they are now. During the depression, Halloween became so violent and destructive that civil authorities had to step in and prevent wide-spread vandalism in cities across America. Their solution, the ritual of “trick or treat,” now generates $2 billion dollars in candy sales each season. And these days adults get dressed up for the holiday almost as much as kids do. But no matter how many jack-o-lanterns get carved or kids yell “trick-or-treat!” Two thousand years and counting, and we still like to be scared on the night of October 31.” If you’ve enjoyed any of our videos this month, you can leave a comment below or share on social media to let us know.
