Brand new, never released before, here is a Fandom Card just added to the TCG
This month’s new card is:
Franchise: The Holiday of Halloween
Fandom Name: Trick or Treaters
A brief explanation about the franchise and fandom:
Celebrated on 31st October, Halloween is a mishmash of traditions and festivals of both pagan and Christian. It is believed the origins started as a Celtic harvest festival however some academics dispute this and believe it began as a solely Christian Holiday.
The belief that Halloween was a time of ghosts and ghouls probably originated due to the Celts believing the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter where it was darker caused the boundary between our world and the “Other World” to be thinned. The Christian influence comes from the belief that first of November is ‘All Hollows’ Day’; a religious holiday, hence why it became known as Halloween.
The tradition of carving a pumpkin came from Ireland and Scotland where they would carve a turnip, however when it spread to North America, carving the native pumpkins was adapted due to their size and ease of carving.
