Spend Oct. 31 in Beirut and you might be forgiven for thinking that Halloween isn't much more than an excuse to dress up and hit the clubs and bars.Halloween's origins are not set in stone, but it is generally accepted to have evolved from the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain. Halloween became a Christian festival, held before All Saint's Day on Nov. 1 .Nowadays, Halloween and its equivalents – such as the Mexican Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead – are celebrated worldwide, with many cultures and traditions honoring that one certainty of life: death. Inside, the store is stacked full of Halloween costumes and accessories stuffed onto wooden shelves; from vampire girl costumes to the Anonymous-adopted Guy Fawkes masks.For a one-stop-shop, Yammine on the Hazmieh highway – just before Kababji – is the most stocked for Halloween, especially if you are looking for adult-sized costumes.
