Halloween in the Nambucca Valley | photos

IT'S almost time for us to get our spooky on again.

Halloween is slowly becoming more adopted as an event in the Nambucca, and across Australia.

You only have to walk into a local supermarket to see all of the decorations to be reminded that Halloween has become a 'thing' in the valley.

Today we look back at your photos sent in from 2017.

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.
