Top 10 Couples That Absolutely Won Halloween

For starters, Halloween is not a competition. Don't worry about 'winning' anything this Thursday night, just go out and have fun! We live in an age of endless lists and comparisons: best-ofs, top 10's, coolest, funniest, most creative... and  Halloween has to take the prize for the most competitive holiday. Let's make Halloween fun again!

These couples are proof of the old saying that "two heads are better than one." While you can make a splash with your own costume at a Halloween party, a bit of creative coordination with your significant other can expand your options and bring you closer together with a little fun teamwork.

This is the best thing about couple's costumes - you get to share your humor, pop culture passions, questionable fashion sense, imagination and creativity with the person that you cherish the most. You can guarantee that these guys had a blast finding their costumes and partying together!

Halloween, contraction of All Hallows’ Eve, a holiday observed on October 31, the evening before All Saints’ (or All Hallows’) Day. The celebration marks the day before the Western Christian feast of All Saints and initiates the season of Allhallowtide, which lasts three days and concludes with All Souls’ Day. In much of Europe and most of North America, observance of Halloween is largely nonreligious.

Halloween had its origins in the festival of Samhain among the Celts of ancient Britain and Ireland. On the day corresponding to November 1 on contemporary calendars, the new year was believed to begin. That date was considered the beginning of the winter period, the date on which the herds were returned from pasture and land tenures were renewed.

During the Samhain festival the souls of those who had died were believed to return to visit their homes, and those who had died during the year were believed to journey to the otherworld. People set bonfires on hilltops for relighting their hearth fires for the winter and to frighten away evil spirits, and they sometimes wore masks and other disguises to avoid being recognized by the ghosts thought to be present.

It was in those ways that beings such as witches, hobgoblins, fairies, and demons came to be associated with the day. The period was also thought to be favourable for divination on matters such as marriage, health, and death. When the Romans conquered the Celts in the 1st century CE, they added their own festivals of Feralia, commemorating the passing of the dead, and of Pomona, the goddess of the harvest.
