Halloween in the Nambucca Valley | photos

WE ASKED, and you answered – revel in these photos of children and adults who embraced Halloween in the Nambucca on Tuesday night.

Dressing as a zombie or skeleton were popular choices, and there were no shortage of vampires too.

Particularly impressive were the number of people who went all out in decorating their homes.

Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, pronounced “sah-win”. 

The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. 

The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.
