    Halloween 3 Halloween 3 Presentation Transcript

    • Halloween Origins and Traditions
    • Origins
      • Halloween began two thousand years ago in Ireland, England, and Northern France with the ancient religion of the Celts (Paganism).
    • Costumes
      • People thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes…
    • So they wore costumes.
      • This way, the ghosts couldn’t recognize them!
    • Today:
      • Children go from house-to-house getting candy.
    • The Jack-O-Lantern
      • The Irish used to carry turnips with candles in them to light their way at night and to scare away ghosts..
    • When they arrived in America they found that pumpkins were both plentiful and easier to carve than turnips.
    • Now, Jack-O-Lanterns are used for decorating people’s homes.
    • People have recently started carving less traditional Jack-O-Lanterns
    • Today, people take their kids trick-or-treating.…
    • And eat lots of candy!
    • If you don’t give candy to a trick-or-treater…
    • This could happen to you!
