Halloween-History, Worksheets and More!

This year, many people may be celebrating Halloween a little bit differently.

But, why do we celebrate? What is the history of this day? This year Halloween will be on Saturday 2020 and it will be a full moon. It will also be the second full moon in the month That means it will be a “Blue Moon”. A Blue Moon is the second full moon in a month.

The tradition of Halloween is actually Celtic from the festival of Samhain. Celtic people would light up bonfires and would wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Pope Gregory the Third designated November 1st in the eighth century to honor saints. All Saints Day incorporated many of the same traditions of Samhain and the evening before was known as All Hallows Eve. Later, it would become “Halloween”.

You can find a more detailed history of Halloween from History.com.
