Halloween-All Saints day

Halloween-All Saints day

What is Halloween?

Halloween is a celebration in remembrance of the dead. It is celebrated yearly on the evening of October 31st.

A mixture of Christian and pagan customs which began its life as a festival named SAMHAIN which marked the conclusion of the harvest.

Between sunset on the 31st October and sunset on the 1st November the dead are remembered and commemorated.

What is All Saints Day?

Also known as All Hallows day it has its roots in the old English word halig which relates in turn to the German word heiliq meaning holy.

It is celebrated on the evening of the 1st November and is primarily a Christian feast day when the Saints are prayed to.

The following day the 2nd November is All Souls Day. The Christian churches hold a special mass where family members who have departed are prayed for. The prayers continue within the church for the whole of November.


The festival is celebrated around the world although it is not an official holiday. In the US it produces the second highest consumer spending overtaken only by Christmas.

Trick or Treat

Children in the west are accompanied by their parents on Halloween to knock on doors dressed in spooky costumes with a request for a treat. This usually results in the occupier either not answering the door or providing a treat which would usually be a sweet or cake.

Could it work on All Saints Day?

Wouldn’t be great if children also dressed as Saints and did a Bless and Give requesting items for the  food banks in our country.

The Festive Season

Halloween also marks the beginning of the festive season which runs through to New Years Day.

Bonfire night on the 5th November otherwise known as  Guy Fawkes comes first in the calendar with fireworks and treacle toffee. Watch out for your fillings!

Christmas eve and Christmas day are a special family occasion. We all tend to give our presents out on Christmas day but it used to be a custom to give gifts on Boxing day. Its origins come from a day when a servant would receive the day off and a gift of money from their masters.

Eye wear for the festive season

An original idea for this time of the year might be to buy some festive eye wear for a loved one.

Take a look at our Velvet collection from Doubleice. Wear them on trick or treat night or over Christmas lunch.

Fashion Reading Glasses

Fashion Reading Glasses

Fashion Reading Glasses should be a marriage of style and quality. As reading glasses are a necessity the designs often tend to be dull and boring.

We believe in making a luxury item out of a necessity and stamping them with modernity. Giorgio Armani famously said ” The difference between style and fashion is quality”.

Eye Eye Design believe that IZIPIZI  Doubleice and Sempre Art have achieved this with their collection of fashion reading glasses. But what is the history behind fashion reading glasses….read onFashion Reading Glasses Continue reading “Fashion Reading Glasses”
