Halloween Classwork

I love to go trick-or-treating which is why Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I like anything chocolate, but my favorite kind are the full-sized Hershey bars. The neighbors don’t understand the point of trick-or-treating when they provide healthy snacks like apples, pretzels, and raisins.

Halloween is based on some pagan beliefs and rituals such as harvest festivals. Samhain, a Celtic pagan celebration, is associated with the harvest and the dead. It was considered a liminal time in which the world of humans and faeries were more fluid. Refreshments were presented for the souls that they believed would visit them.
