Halloween Halloween Presentation Transcript

  • 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.  
  • 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.  
  • 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.  
  • Halloween   is   an   old   tradiHon   in  Ireland  and  Scotland.  In   those   countries,   people  dressed   up   and   carried   lanterns  made  of  turnips.  
  • When   people   moved   from   Ireland   and  Scotland   to   the   United   States,   they  started  using  pumpkins.     This  is  where  the  jack-­‐o’-­‐lantern   comes  from.  
  • 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.
