Welcome back, friends!

Summer flew by and now all our escorts in Chicago are waiting for the approaching the Holiday Season. Thanksgiving is right around the corner but first comes… Halloween, which is a favorite of all our escorts in Chicago.

This holiday came about from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain. Halloween is an annual holiday, celebrated each year on October 31, and has roots in age-old European traditions. The Celts would mark the end of their harvest season and beginning of winter. They believed the change of season was a bridge to the world of the dead.

The celebration of Halloween was extremely limited in colonial New England because of the rigid Protestant belief systems there. Halloween was much more common in the southern colonies.

In the second half of the nineteenth century, America was flooded with new immigrants. These new immigrants, especially the millions of Irish fleeing the Irish potato famine, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween nationally.

Suddenly, a new American tradition was born, and it has continued to grow. Today, Americans spend an estimated $6 billion annually on Halloween, making it the country’s second largest commercial holiday after Christmas.

Over time, this fun kid-friendly holiday transitioned from a pagan ritual. Today Halloween is celebrated with a day of parties, costumes, jack-o-lanterns, and sweets treat for both kids and adults. In Chicago, our pretty blonde and brunette escorts are all picking out costumes. Some of them are pretty funny and a few are really super cool maid outfits, witch costumes, and even an escort dressing as a pumpkin.

All of us at Escorts Chicago wish you all a super fun filled Halloween!
