    Halloween is an old Celtic holiday. But it wasn’t always "Halloween"; people didn’t always dress up in stained bedsheets, go to parties, and eat unhealthy amounts of candy.
    November 1st is All Saint’s Day. It is the day when the Celts believed the barrier between the world of the spirits and the world of the living became thin enough for the spirits to cross through. They welcomed the spirits of their ancestors but were afraid of evil spirits. The Celts believed that the evil spirits would run wild on "All Hallow’s Eve," or the night before All Saint’s Day. So they wore scary masks and carved pumpkins, gourds, and turnips so that the evil spirits would think they were friends, not enemies.
    The word "Halloween" is really just a mispronounciation/misspelling of "All Hallow’s Even" (Evening). "All Hallow’s Even" became "Hallow’s Even" which became "Hallowe’en" which became "Halloween."
    Where do we get trick-or-treating from? In Europe, beggars used to go door-to-door begging for food in exchange for a song, story, or prayer. If they did not get what they wanted, they would pull a prank on their neighbor, hence the "trick" part of "trick-or-treat."
    Have fun this Halloween. Dress up, eat treats, and stay out of trouble.
    With love,
    Bethie

    It was believed to be the day of the dead, the day the line between the living and the dead was thinnest.
    So people made jack-o-lanterns (Then in turnips) To scare of ghosts.
