Traditionally known as “All Saints ‘Day”, Halloween is celebrated on the eve of Christian All Saints’ Day, All Saints ‘Day or All Saints’ Day (November 1st). So Halloween is definitely celebrated on October 31st.

In England, saints or saints are called “Saints” and are therefore called “All Saints’ Day”. The evening before the wedding, or “e’en”, “All Hallows Eve” or “Halloween”, is still briefly mentioned.

A brief history of Halloween

A BRIEF HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN
The origin of Halloween is the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain (sowing, cows and rhymes), which means summer. It is a festival that celebrates the end of the harvest and the beginning of this year’s “semi-darkness”. This is a sign of the season as the ancient Celts said goodbye to the warmth and light of my long day.

The ancient Celts believed that during Samhain the veil was thin between the world of the living and the dead. This has positive benefits as it is a good time to think of the dead, to communicate with the dead, and to communicate for the future. However, the Celts also believed that ghosts (spirits) could invade the walls and destroy crops. To respond to the event, people get large burns to burn the plants.

In recent years, the Irish have used clams and diabolical beet candles to scare their souls. When Irish immigrants discovered some beets in the United States in the 1840s, they made more common use of pumpkins. Read about the origins of the popular Halloween tradition, from broom witches to Bob’s apples.

After the Roman Empire in the 1st 800 years later, the Roman Catholic Church continued to revise Samhain, which declared November 1st to be All Saints’ Day in honor of all Catholic saints. Today it was known as devotion or alohalom, which means devotion.

All Saints ‘Day is known as All Saints’ Day in England. The night of October 31st is called All Hallows Eve. More often it is Halloween.

Celebrate Halloween

Many Halloween celebrations are offensive, others are reminiscent of death and ideas of good and bad.

Halloween was once called “The Nutcracker Night” in the UK. It’s time for families to meet in the playground and enjoy pollen, nuts, and apples.

1. Carving group

CARVE PUMPKINS
Pumpkin engraving is one of the most popular methods in North America. Every year children love to suck in the inside of the pumpkin with a spoon and carve the pumpkin with a little help from parents (often there is a lot of help at a young age!). Check out a guide on how to carve a pumpkin from Farmer Mike.

They like to apply pumpkins because the carved pumpkins do not rot and only last for 3-7 days. This is great for all ages but especially for schools, groups, and offices looking to host early pumpkin decorating competitions. Let’s see who has the best design! Award the most creative, fun, and artful pumpkins.

2. Pumpkin seed roast

ROAST PUMPKIN SEEDS
After you’ve cut the pumpkin contents, you need to age the pumpkin seeds naturally! Be careful of salt and unfriendly snacks soon! See the recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds.

If you don’t want to eat nuts, you can collect pumpkin seeds and make the wreath of pumpkin seeds colorful.

 

3. Use Halloween costumes

Everyone loves the opportunity to wear Halloween costumes. Costumes such as horror and witches, idlers, ghosts and vampires are associated with Halloween. But in America, costumes are ridiculous, from inconceivably huge bananas to superhero characters!

You definitely don’t have to buy any costumes. It is common to make a dress at home. Toilet paper is sufficient for mothers. Old white sheets can turn into ghosts. Add a little bit of face paint to create a vampire. Check out fake blood ideas from Halloween makeup and pantry.

 

4. Do Halloween crafts

Lots of fun Halloween activities and crafts. ,Here are some of my favorites from last year,:

Rocking apple. Traditionally, we all try to reach for an apple with our teeth in a large metal tank. Many parents now consider it unhealthy. But here are some fun options. Give each bucket of water with apples and ask them to take off. Create a run and give the winner a prize.
Corn husk dolls were long ago made by Native American children and are now a fun activity. See how to make a traditional corn chicken doll
Have you shrunk the apple’s head? This tradition comes from the Native American people. All you need is an apple! Find out how to make a scary apple head.

HALLOWEEN POEMS

Wake up your walking dead with these Halloween poems! They are perfect to read in the evening or to add to a homemade card.

From “Spirits of the Dead”
By Edgar Allan Poe
“Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness—for then
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still
.”

From “Song of the Witches” (Macbeth)
By William Shakespeare
“Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.”

From “All Soul’s Night, 1917”
by Hortense King Flexner
“You heap the logs and try to fill
The little room with words and cheer,
But silent feet are on the hill,
Across the window veiled eyes peer.
The hosts of lovers, young in death,
Go seeking down the world to-night,
Remembering faces, warmth and breath—
And they shall seek till it is light.
Then let the white-flaked logs burn low,
Lest those who drift before the storm
See gladness on our hearth and know
There is no flame can make them warm.”

From “Theme in Yellow”
By Carl Sandburg
“I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o’-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know I am fooling
.”

From “Hallowe’en”
By Joel Benton
“Pixie, kobold, elf, and sprite
All are on their rounds to-night,—
In the wan moon’s silver ray
Thrives their helter-skelter play.

Don’t we all, of long ago
By the ruddy fireplace glow,
In the kitchen and the hall,
Those queer, coof-like pranks recall?

Every shadows were they then—
But to-night they come again;
Were we once more but sixteen
Precious would be Hallowe’en
.”

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!
