Hello and welcome to our blog here at Armagh Blooms, the premier florists shop in Armagh and the surrounding areas! Today, as it is only one week away from Halloween, we thought we would share with you some of the things we can provide for you in the run up to this evening.
Halloween Came From Ancient Celtic Traditions
Halloween is a phenomenon that has grown and grown here in the UK over the last 10 to 20 years. Its popularity in the United States has now transferred itself to our shores and it is a big event in most children`s calendars. Although Halloween was a bigger deal in the US than here the origins of it are rooted in ancient Celtic traditions.
During the Celtic festival of Samhain the people used to light bonfires and wear outlandish costumes in a bid to ward off any ghosts in the area. Back in those days the Celts, who were situated in Ireland, the UK and northern France, celebrated the New Year on November 1st but they believed that on the eve of the New Year, October 31st, that the ghosts of the dead returned to the earth so they performed rituals to keep them at bay. Over the years Halloween has evolved so that now the main activity for children is trick or treat and making lanterns out of pumpkins etc, and it is popular in a great many countries all around the world.

Here at Armagh Blooms we have some great products for you to tie in with Halloween. We can provide you with Halloween pumpkin flower arrangements which will be made to order for you, and we have all sorts of other `spooktastic` items which you can check out if you come to our florists.
