It would be worthwhile to save the seeds and innards for later use, such as toasting pumpkin seeds or baking pumpkin bread.

Having kids plan and run their own haunted house can be a lot of fun. Allow kids to create their own “spooky” experience by setting rules about props, using equipment and clearing up afterwards.

Lantern making is a fun craft idea and a great party decoration. Take some brown or white paper lunch bags and cut fun designs and shapes. Fill the bottom of the bag with sand and place a battery-operated candle on top.

What is Halloween?

All Hallows Eve, or Halloween, is a holiday celebrated on October 31, the evening before All Saints’ (or All Hallows’) Day. 

In Western Christianity, Allhallowtide begins the day before All Saints’ Day, which lasts three days and concludes with All Souls Day. 

The observance of Halloween is largely nonreligious in much of Europe and North America.

Origins of Halloween

The origins of Halloween can be traced back to the Celtic Festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). 2,000 years ago, the Celts, mostly living in what is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and Northern France celebrated their New Year on November 1st.

In the past, this day marked the harvest and the beginning of the dark cold winter. It was believed by the Celts that the boundary between the living and the dead blurred on the night before the New Year.

On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain when it was believed the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

History of Trick-or-Treating

Taking after European traditions, Americans began dressing up in costumes and asking for food and money from house to house. As a result, this practice eventually became the trick-or-treat tradition we know today.

It was in the late 1800s Halloween began to shift from a night of ghosts, pranks and witchcraft to a day of community and neighbourhood gatherings.

Halloween parties for children and adults became the most common way to celebrate the holiday around the turn of the century. It was a time for games, food of the season and festive costumes at the parties.

It was recommended parents refrain from displaying anything “frightening” or “grotesque” during Halloween celebrations.

It was because of these efforts Halloween lost most of its superstitious and religious overtones by the turn of the twentieth century.

History of Halloween Parties

As Halloween evolved into a secular holiday in the 1920s and 1930s, its main attractions were parades and towns’ Halloween parties.

In spite of many schools and communities best efforts, vandalism plagued some celebrations in many communities during this time.

As the 1950s approached, town leaders had successfully limited vandalism and Halloween was becoming a holiday mostly for the young.

Because of the high number of children during the fifties baby boom, parties were held in classrooms and homes rather than town civic centers.

It was also during these decades trick-or-treating was revived. Halloween was a relatively inexpensive way for communities to celebrate together.

By providing small treats to the neighbourhood children, families could also prevent tricks from being played on them.

As a result, a new American tradition was born and it has continued to flourish. Halloween is now the second most popular commercial holiday in the country, after Christmas, spending an estimated $6 billion each year.

Halloween, The Movie

The box office success of scary Halloween movies has a long history. There are a number of classic Halloween movies, including the “Halloween” franchise, based on the 1978 original film directed by John Carpenter and starring Donald Pleasance, Nick Castle, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Tony Moran.

The story of Halloween revolves around a young boy named Michael Myers who murders his 17-year-old sister and is sent to jail, only to escape over Halloween night and look for his old home and a new target.

The direct sequel to the original “Halloween” was released in 2018. Halloween Kills, the twelfth installment in the franchise, was released in 2021.  

With its spooky soundtrack, “Halloween” is considered a classic horror film that inspired other iconic “slasher films” like “Scream,” “Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Friday the 13.” Families can enjoy Halloween movies like “Hocus Pocus,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Beetlejuice” and “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”
