Red Cape

Tegan Dawson

The complete outfit for the tour guide Tegan Dawson of Haunted Hills Tours is pictured above. An addition to the costume in May was the red cloak, this was good for dealing with the chill, and added an extra dimension to the costume in addition to the chatty dress. It adds warmth and flair, the breeze using it and making it dance to its own rhythm. The cloak is less chatty and brings a sense of movement and drama.

Celebrating Halloween…

Halloween is an event that falls on the 31st of October, the name comes from combining the phrase “All Hallows Eve”, the night before All Saints (Hallows) Day.

That is the only thing that is absolutely certain about Halloween, because it has histories that have been written to challenge the pagan culture. With Colonisation when the Church conquered along with Britain they would Christianise the festivals and customs of the locals to bring the cultures closer together (another example is the ‘Day of the Dead’). Or alienate people they considered to far from the values they wanted, like witches.

The ancient Celts, on Samhain (Sow-en) asked for favour over their upcoming harvests. The celebration started at sunset on the 31st of October and goes through until 1st of November.   They celebrated by wearing meaningful costumes and dancing around a bonfire.

Some Christians say Halloween is the most Satanic festival of the year and believe those who celebrate it are worshiping the devil. This has inspired a whole range of horror themed Halloween ideas, which are a lot of fun to watch.

So how do you celebrate Halloween (The most retweets would seem to the most favoured method)?

In Australia Halloween is a relatively new widespread celebration. Some Australians may see it as a fun idea to dress up, eat lollies and have a party… Others might not get quite into the spirit of things, or refuse to celebrate as it’s not a part of our culture.

Do you love Halloween for the ability to pull out the pumpkin recipes and make soup, pumpkin pie, and stock the freezer with comfort food for the cooler days ahead.

Do you celebrate Samhain, the end of summer instead with dressing up and dancing around a campfire.

Do you want to attend a ghost tour? We’re running one on Halloween and the 30th of October. You could come along, if you’re in Yallourn North of Traralgon.

 

If you’re on Facebook share the way you celebrate:

feedback from Amethyst Rose about the first Traralgon Ghost Tour

Our journey then proceed to what was my favourite part of the tour; a stroll through the alleyways connect Seymour Street with Hotham. (1) It was an overall fascinating and atmospheric night and an experience I would highly recommend to others with a flair for local myth and legend. (1)
