We at Hallmark Homes enjoy this time of year, when the air turns crisp and the leaves begin to fall. With Fall in the air, you know that Halloween is just around the corner. It’s a holiday that is enjoyed by young and old alike.
Did you know that Halloween or Hallowe’en (/ˌhæləˈwiːn, -oʊˈiːn, ˌhɑːl-/; a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows’ Eve revolves around the theme of using “humor and ridicule to confront the power of death.”*
Obviously Halloween has evolved from its beginnings, but some elements still remain. Here in Idaho, you will see decorations inside and outside of homes, Neighbors sharing treats, and on Halloween night lots of little ghosts and goblins in many neighborhoods running around from home to home yelling “Trick or Treat!” It’s a fun time of year.
Several of our home owners in Paramount Subdivision in Meridian, ID have decorated their homes. They did such a great job that Hallmark Homes, your premier Idaho home builder in Idaho wanted to share some photos of their homes with you. These are only a few of the great decorated homes in Paramount. Come see all of them and visit our new model home on Clooney Ave. For directions to our NEW model home, click here.
