Black, Orange, and Purple; Halloween’s Favorite Colors

•  halloween

Halloween is just around the corner! We’re starting to see a lot of black, orange, and purple pop around our neighborhoods. It’s no surprise that these colors are Halloween’s favorites! Out of all the colors in this world, how did black, orange, and purple become associated with Halloween?

For the longest time, black and orange have been Halloween’s top two colors. Black is associated with darkness, death, and the long nights approaching with the winter solstice. Halloween comes from the Celts, who would wear black on this day to open doors between the living and the departed. Orange represents the change of season and fall foliage. Shades of orange can be seen in leaves, jack ‘o lanterns, and harvest moons. It wasn’t until later than purple became another notable Halloween color, due to its association with witchcraft.

We at love all these colors for Halloween! In fact, we’ve picked out our top 3 favorite black, orange, and purple items that are perfect for your Halloween party! Check out our list below.
