Halloween, also known as All Hallows' Eve, is an annual holiday observed around the world on October 31. Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. It was a time when ancient pagans prepare for the winter by stocking up on supplies. It was believed that on 31 October, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and dead would overlap and the deceased would return to wreck havoc on eartth. Therefore during Halloween, masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them. From traditional activities like carving jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, trick or treating and apple bobbing, Halloween has evolved over the times to include modern elements like costume dance parties and even cosplay.
In World of Tanks this Halloween, we usher in this holiday by treating (no tricks!) you to increased profits and discounts on selected tanks and premium shells. Your garage will also be given a makeover in theme with the holiday so be sure to log into World of Tanks during this time to enjoy these benefits and revel in the festivities with your fellow Tank Commanders.
Have a Happy World of Tanks Halloween!
