HALLOWEEN ROMANTIC ART AND CUSTOMS OF YESTERYEAR - DIANE C. ARKINS

Halloween Romantic Art and Customs of Yesteryear

Halloween is the fastest growing holiday for adults in America. With haunted houses, trick or treating, and costumes ranging from television characters and political figures to vegetables and ghouls, October 31st has become a widely celebrated holiday.

Halloween celebrations of yesteryear were occasions for hopeful romantics to try their fate in love, and were commemorated in rhymes, chants, trials, and tests. Many of the elements of these celebrations involved traditional fruits of the harvest - apples and pumpkins among them. This book is a superb resource for planning a Halloween celebration, with a number of fun and entertaining games included.

The years from 1900 to 1918 are known to collectors as the "Golden Age of Postcards" and during this period, people sent postcards for any occasion, including Halloween. Many examples of the popular illustrated postcards from this era are included in this book. Admirers of early twentieth century style and romance will enjoy this engaging look at vintage Halloween postcards and the romantic traditions they depicted.

Halloween Romantic Art and Customs of Yesteryear is available for purchase at Amazon.com
