What is Halloween?

"Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is a holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saint's Day. It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones.The day is often associated with the colors orange and black, and is strongly associated with symbols such as the jack-o-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing customers, ghost tours, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, pranking people, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies."

That is just a brief description of what Halloween is like. There are so many colors, costumes, excitement, creativity, happy children and most of all-CANDY!

It is such an exciting time! You can only dress up and be what you want once a year and that is on October 31st. Halloween!

Regardless of if you are a parent or a child, it can be exciting for the whole family!
