All of our Romanian studios participated in a new edition of the Halloween jar contest. The contest measures the creation of the most innovative and spooktacular jar in teams of five colleagues, using scissors, Halloween accessories, acrylic paint, brushes, colored paper & duck tape. It was a total success! Our colleagues in Baia Mare, Iasi, Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj-Napoca & remote (Brasov) really involved and used their imagination to create very creative, and original jars.

Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31st. The tradition originated from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before All Saints Day was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating treats.
