This clever play on words is signifying that the wearer is the Host and he is also dressed in costume as a ghost.
The famous holiday, Halloween, began over 2,000 years ago by the Celtic people. However, instead of calling it Halloween the Celtic people called it Samhain. They celebrated this holiday on October 31st when they believed the world of the living and the world of the dead merged on this night. In 609 A.D., Christianity adapted Samhain to All Souls’ Day in order to incorporate this “pagan” tradition into Christian life. Christians who began to celebrate All Souls’ Day used many of the same activities that the Celtic people had done during Samhain. In the 16th century, dressing up in costumes during Halloween became very common. Among the most common costumes was the ghost. This is because of the Christian influence of All Souls’ Day and the emphasis on spirits.
