It’s Ghostober at MyMalls and we have something very special in store for our Halloween loving members. Before we get into it, we want to highlight our latest member country: Ireland - the place where it all began! Dating back to the Celtic festival of Samhain, Halloween has been a quintessential part of Ireland’s culture and folk history for 2000 years. So, it is no wonder this spooky holiday is still highly celebrated on the Emerald isle.
Despite its Irish origins, Halloween is considered an American Holiday with trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and costume wearing as its most common traditions. The spookfest has now exploded all over the world and the countries MyMalls operates in are no exception. So, if you aren't sure how to celebrate, we are here to help make your Halloween a Terrorific one!

On Sunday, October 31 the boundary between the world of the living and the dead will become blurred. It marks the end of summer and the harvest - and the beginning of the New Year; according to the Celts who lived two millennia ago. The tradition originated with the Celtic festival of Samhain where people would ward off ghosts by wearing costumes and lighting bonfires. More recently, in the 8th century, Pope Gregory III decreeted November 1, All Saints Day. The Catholic church incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain to celebrate on the evening before. This is how October 31 became known as All Hallows Eve - Halloween - which has now evolved into the creepy-fun Holiday it is today.
2021 Costume Trends
Some of us have spent the last year and a half stuck inside the house binge watching TV shows or plugged into social media. So, it’s not surprising that this year’s most popular costumes reflect some of the most iconic media and pop culture moments of 2021. To name a few, Marvel Comic characters from Venom and WandaVision are in high demand, but the true kicker this year are costumes from the Netflix hit series Squid Game. DIY costumes are always very popular and some of the most searched costumes on the Internet are Kim Kardashian's shadowy Met Gala look or pop star Britney Spears, whose life has been trending all year. However, our personal favorite here at MyMalls has to be Bernie Sanderswatching the Presidential Inauguration. There are also some pop culture classics in the mix to satiate Gen Z's obsession with the 90s: Cher’s iconic yellow plaid suit in the movie Clueless and the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are two very popular recurring themes that have remained undefeated for decades. You can find all of these looks and so much more on the Halloween Shop on amazon. We are also all about the fur-babies at MyMalls, so we urge you to visit the Spooktacular Creations store also on amazon for the most awesome pet costumes and accessories for Halloween.
Let’s be honest, Halloween simply wouldn’t be Halloween without the spine-tingling movies that go along with it. Ghostober is the one month where we all can appreciate the horror genre, even if you are not a fan. So, make sure you turn off the lights, lock the doors, pop the popcorn and settle in for some of the best Halloween movies!
