We have been learning lots of fun facts about Halloween. Did you know that Halloween is celebrated half way between Summer and Winter. Long ago people believed it was half way between life and death. The dead would come back to life for one night. The Celtic people wore masks to trick the zombies.
We also discovered how trick or treating started! The Celts left food at their door to stop the zombies from coming in. After a while children began taking the food and knocking on the door to ask for more yummy treats! Sometimes the children even performed a song, a dance, a poem or a trick to get something nice.
Trick or Treat! :)
