Halloween Treats In Davao City-Part 1

Halloween may be a western tradition but the Dabawenyos are starting to celebrate this albeit more conservatively. The celebration was originally known as Samhain, a Celtic festival which is regarded as their own version of a New Year and coincides with the end of the Gaelic harvest season.

This is actually one of the many pagan festivals that even Christians celebrate in the modern world. While the ancient pagans took advantage of Halloween to to get their supplies for winter, the ancient Gaels believed that this is that time of the year when the living is faced with sickness and other problems caused by the dead. The costumes worn today reflected the same costumes worn in the early days to either mimic or placate the evil spirits.

Today, people consider Halloween to be a family affair with kids getting the most of out the celebration as they go from house to house shouting trick or treats! Here are some of the Halloween celebrations scheduled in Davao City.

Eden Nature Park

Children will get their treats alright with the Harry Potter-inspired Halloween Party at the Eden Nature Park on October 31 at 5:30pm. Wear your favorite Harry Potter character from Harry himself, Hermione, Hagrid or even Dumbledore! The organizers of the event said the kids will be dazzled not only with the games and surprises during the Party. There will also be a price for those who will win the Best in Costume contest. Eden's own magician staff will teach children the art of origami and hopefully they will be able to come up with their own Hedwig owls.
