The Colors of Halloween

Black is the color of death and Halloween is a time when the veil between the spirit world and the living is thin. Historically the Celts and Druids celebrated Samhain and welcomed the spirits of their ancestors. October 31 – November 2 Mexico celebrates Dia de Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

Orange – The Vibration of Life

Orange is a lively color that celebrates life and the bounty of the Autumn harvest; the color of fire cutting through the darkness of night. Orange is warm and positive. Autumn leaves turn orange, fall harvest of pumpkins are orange.

Red – The Color of Blood

Red is often associated with Halloween because of vampires, and blood is a key ingredient in witch’s potions and voodoo magic. A Devil’s contract is typically sealed with blood.

White – A Ghastly Color

Sometimes seen as innocents, pure and light, Halloween white is more sinister. White is the color of bone peeking out from a shallow grave, and the ghosts that go bump in the night. It is the color of moonlight glinting off gravestones and lightening flashing through the sky.
