Happy Halloween !

BOO !

 

 

 

Good morning fellow goblins and ghouls, witches and trick-or-treaters!

Ever wonder the why, when, how, and where of Halloween?

Why is Halloween celebrated? When did this tradition begin? How did this sugar-fueled holiday come about?  And, finally, where was it created and where is it celebrated now?

All of the answers (as well as many other super-informative tidbits!) can be found in Halloween: The Fantasy and Folklore of All Hallows  provided by the Library of Congress.

I’m sure everyone will learn something new!  Also, if any of you fearless readers attempt the mirror trick mentioned – please let us know what, if anything (or anyone!) happens to show!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone!
