It’s a dark, scary night while walking home from school late in October.   We all know what that means–it is that time of the year again, All Hallows Eve, or the street name, Halloween. This is the perfect time to share your nightmares and eat a lot of candy with no judgement because everyone else is eating candy, too!  But do we ever think from where Halloween originated?

Halloween started with the roots leading to European traditions, with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. As years went on, Halloween developed into a night of activities such as trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, and stories being told of fights.

Around the world, as days grow shorter and nights get colder, people continue to celebrate the season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats. It is amazing how a ancient festival could still be going on after decades of time and change. Remember the spooks, the spirits, the fun, the candy, and, of course, the thrills of All Hallows Eve. Have a frightful night…don’t run into any ghosts!
