On Halloween we enjoyed many
activities, as watching videos or scary
movies, singing songs or learning
For example, we studied Halloween origins
and we learnt that…
Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on
It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the
Christian holy day of All Saints. The term derives from
“All Hallows Eve” that means “eve of All Saints‟ Day”.
Carving turnips as ghoulish faces to hold candles became a popular part
of the festival, which has been adapted to carving pumpkins in America.
Nowadays this festival is celebrated in many western countries as the
U.K., U.S.A., Canada, New Zeland and Australia.
Today children go trick-or-treating asking for candies and fruit.
