5 Reasons to Embrace Halloween in all its Gory Glory for Children and Families with our Activity SheetsYay Halloween! One reason to look forward to the clocks changing and dark nights, Halloween represents a night of trick-or-treating, spooky pumpkin patches, dressing up and – what could be better? – free sweets. It’s great all ‘round: for adults, for kids, for families and for you!
For those who aren’t familiar with this particular holiday’s history, Halloween is the modern name for an ancient tradition that originated as a Celtic harvest festival called Samhain. On this night the border between the worlds of the living and the dead blurred, allowing ghosts to roam the earth for one night. When Christians started celebrating All Saints’ Day on 1 November, the night before, named All Hallows’ Eve, became Halloween.
