Scary twin Halloween costumes

You’ll be in line with the origin of Halloween if you pick out scary twin Halloween costumes. Even though the origin of Halloween is disputed, many believe Halloween originates from the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain. Samhain means ‘Summer’s End’ and was celebrated to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the “darker half” of the year. It was believed that the walls between our world and the next became thin and porous, allowing spirits to pass through and come back to life on the day. Think ghosts, skeletons or do a remake of your favorite horror movie, like the picture below of the twins from The Shining.
