Halloween

  1. 1. Where  does  Halloween  come  from?   We   celebrate   Halloween   every   year   on   October  31st.  Where  does  the  holiday  come   from?   The   holiday   originally   comes   from  a  people  called  the  Celts.  
  2. 2. The  Celts  lived  in  Europe  more  than  2000   years  ago.  On  November  1st  they  celebrated   the  end  of  summer.   They  thought  ghosts  visited  the  living   on  October  31st.  They  dressed  up  like   spirits  so  that  spirits  would  not  harm   them.  
  3. 3. Today,  many  countries  remember  the  dead  on   November   1st.   It   is   called   All   Saints   Day.   Another  name  for  it  is  All  Hallow’s  Day.     The   day   before,   October   31st,   is   called   All   Hallow’s  Eve,  or  Halloween  for  short.  
  4. 4. Halloween  is  an  old  tradiHon  in   Ireland  and  Scotland.   In   those   countries,   people   dressed  up  and  carried  lanterns   made  of  turnips.  
  5. 5. When   people   moved   from   Ireland   and   Scotland   to   the   United   States,   they   started  using  pumpkins.     This  is  where  the  jack-­‐o’-­‐lantern   comes  from.  
  6. 6. There  is  also  a  tradiHon  of  giving  food  to  the   spirits.   Later,   they   gave   the   food   to   poor   people.   This   is   where   trick-­‐or-­‐trea.ng   comes  from.
