Why do we celebrate Halloween?
Halloween or All Hallows Eve is celebrated on 31st October. Its origins are a combination of an ancient Celtic festival at the end of the Harvest season – when people would wear costumes and light bonfires to ward off ghosts – and a Roman Christian festival that celebrated the passing of the dead.
These days we celebrate with trick or treating, pumpkin carving, scary decorations and wearing creepy costumes! The Metro have an interesting article on where trick or treating came from and why we carve pumpkins.
We all know that kids (big and small) love Halloween and where there’s a theme, there’s a way of making learning fun! So, we hope our free Halloween activities for children will help to make your Halloween at home a haunting success!
