History of trick or treat
"Trick or treating" is a tradition that originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain, a harvest festival and All Saints Day. The Irish brought the concept to America when they immigrated there during the Great Famine of1846. It is becoming more popular each year in South Africa and other parts of the world. In celebration of Halloween in South Africa on the 31st of October, it is common for children (and even adults!) to dress up in scary costumes, and for sweets and chocolates to be a focal point of the day.
"Halloween is becoming a highly popular event in South Africa. People give gifts of chocolates to one another, especially to children who go trick or treating," says Sharon Louw, CEO of Interflora South Africa. "Our Halloween special is ideal for this occasion. The Gerbera bunch contains bright Halloween colours and is a perfect gift to send. And of course, the free slab of chocolate is a great treat for Halloween."
The Gerbera bunch is a lively arrangement of blooms in traditional Halloween orange. The Gerberas are arranged amongst other smaller flowers and foliage and packaged in attractive white cellophane. The bag of chocolates contains a selection of high-quality mixed chocolates carefully enclosed in a deep orange drawstring bag. The striking orange colours of the bag and flowers are the signature colours of Halloween.
