Transcript

  • 1. A Brief History of Halloween Meghan McLeroy 4 th Period
  • 2. Origins of Halloween
    • Halloween was started by the Celts. Back
    • when it first started it was a festival of
    • Samhain, which is the
    • Gaelic word for
    • November.
    • Later, the Romans
    • combined it with two other
    • festivals, and it lasted three days. Together the
    • three days were called Hallowmas, which was
    • later changed to Halloween.
  • 3. How Halloween Arrived in the U.S.
    • Halloween was brought to the U.S. by
    • European immigrants. The immigrants
    • realized they
    • missed the
    • festival so they
    • started to celebrate
    • it here. The
    • immigration boom of the 1900s really
    • helped spread Halloween around.
  • 4. Halloween Around the World-- Scotland
    • Scotland shared the Gaelic culture that
    • the Celts had; therefore, Halloween has
    • been around a very long time.
    • In Scotland, children go to
    • people’s houses and entertain
    • them to get candy.
  • 5. Halloween Around the World--Bonaire
    • Halloween spread to Bonaire after the U.S.
    • had started celebrating it. In Bonaire, kids
    • go to shops and get candy, rather than
    • going to houses.
  • 6. Halloween Around the World--Ireland
    • Like Scotland, Ireland has some Gaelic
    • culture. Halloween has almost been in
    • Ireland since it has started.
    • In Ireland, they celebrate
    • Halloween by dressing up as
    • creatures from the underworld and
    • lighting bonfires.
  • 7. Halloween Personalities
  • 8. Halloween Symbols
  • 9. Halloween Traditions in the U.S.
    • Some people dress up and go trick-or-
    • treating to receive candy. Others go to
    • costume parties at neighborhood
    • houses. Either way, Halloween
    • is fun for all ages!
