Did you know?

The night that we associate with candy, costumes, and tricks actually began as the Celtic festival, Samhain (pronounced Sah-ween), to honor the dead, aid them in their journey to the afterlife, and keep their spirits away from the living. It was believed that the ghosts of the dead were able to mingle with the living on this day more than any other time of the year. Creepy!!

Check out the article from The American Folklife Center to learn more about the history of Halloween.
