What is Halloween, Anyway?
Halloween is a holiday recognized in large parts of the world, though in some countries they call it something else … In Ireland, for example they call it Samhain (which means “the end of summer” or “summer’s end”).
Etymologically speaking the word Halloween comes from All Hallows’ Eve (Evening), and in terms of time Halloween’s Day always falls on the 31st of October. Generally speaking, Halloween is thought of as a time to dress up in weird, scary costumes, play games and pranks, and party. For the children it is trick-or-treat time, as they (dressed up as ghosts, werewolves, vampires, witches and such) go from house to house begging for treats and sweets (i.e. candy and fruit).
Halloween is generally regarded not only as a harvest festival, but also as a time when the co-called ‘veil between worlds’ is thinner than in all other days during the year so that faeries and the souls of the dead and other things (spirits and monsters!) can travel more freely between ‘otherwhere’ and here. In consequence, some people like to visit ‘haunted’ places on this day – the odds of seeing a real, ‘live’ ghost (or some other monster) are supposed to better on Halloween than on any other night of the year.
Not everybody wants to meet ghouls and ghosts, though. In fact, the carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns and dressing up in weird costumes bit probably has its roots in an attempt to look scary enough to ward off evil witches, warlocks, spirits and monsters – if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right?
Since we’re generally not very frightened by the idea of ghouls, ghosts, weres and vampires anymore, we do our best to scare ourselves – thus the rather modern tradition of watching spooky horror movies and telling scary stories around a bonfire.
So, now you know a bit more about why witches and warlocks, ghosts and ghouls as well as pirates, werewolves, vampires, faeries and the-monster-of-your-choice are all so popular on Halloween cards. That makes for the perfect cue to present some more free printable Halloween cards …

Here’s a couple of Halloween quotes to get you in the right mood:
Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve … And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon.
~ Kim Elizabeth ~
Auld Daddy Darkness creeps frae his hole,
Black as a blackamoor, blin’ as a mole …
~ James Ferguson ~
Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!”
~ Dexter Kozen ~
Not in the melodramatic mood yet? No problemo. The bard, that is: THE bard, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) had just the proper weird vocabulary to get us in the right menacing mood … just read this prime example of timeless, great Halloween quotes:
A dark Cave. In the middle, a Caldron boiling. Thunder. Enter the three Witches (…)
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.
~ William Shakespeare ~ (from: “Macbeth”, act 1)
