  • 1. HAPPY HALLOWEEN
  • 2. Ancient Celt
    • Centuries ago, there were some people called the Celts who lived in what are now England, France and Ireland .
    • The Celts believed that spirits sometimes helped and other times they hurt people.
  • 3.
    • The Celts spent all spring and summer growing food to last them through the winter.
    • When it was time to harvest all the food, they held a festival called SAMHAIN to thank the good spirits for their help.
  • 4.
    • The festival was celebrated on November Ist , the day that marked the end of warm light weather.
    • As part of the celebration, people wore costumes and ate plenty of good food.
    • They also made sacrifices to keep bad spirits away.
  • 5. All Saint's Day
    • Several hundred years later,a new religion (Christianity) spread in the Celtic lands.
    • Christianity, believed that November Ist was a day to honour people who had died for their religion.
  • 6. Origin of the word “HALLOWEEN”
    • November Ist became known as "All Saint's Day" or "All-hallowmas .
    • The night before the festival day, October 31, became known as "All-hallows Eve" or "Hallowe'en."
