Trick or treat! That's right, it's that time of the year once again; Halloween is almost upon us!
What better way to celebrate this horrifying season than with mouth-watering Halloween sweets?! Whether you wish to hand them out to trick-or-treaters or use them during spooky-scary Halloween parties, Poundstretcher have you covered with a selection of deliciously terrifying Halloween sweets!
Halloween, formerly known as All Hallows Eve, has been thought to have its beginnings in pagan festivals held around the end of October here in the UK. People originally believed that the spirits of the dead wandered amongst the living. To avoid any nasty confrontations, they dressed in costumes whenever they had t go outside.
Trick-or-treating arose from these beliefs. The tradition of going from house-to-house 'trick-or-treating' in the UK goes as far back as the 16th century. Throughout the years these customs were outlawed, changed, and developed into the celebrations we see today.
So, if you're seeking for more treats than tricks this year, why not celebrate this Halloween in 2017 with Poundstretcher? Our range of affordable and fantastic Halloween sweets will surely be a pleasant shock.
