It is Halloween time again!!! Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. Halloween is a holiday of many mysterious customs, but each one has a history, or at least a story behind it. The wearing of costumes, for instance, and roaming from door to door demanding treats can be traced to the Celtic period and the first few centuries of the Christian era, when it was thought that the souls of the dead were out and around, along with fairies, witches, and demons. Offerings of food and drink were left out to placate them. As the time went by, people began dressing like these dreadful creatures, performing antics in exchange for food and drink. This practice is called mumming, from which the practice of trick-or-treating evolved.
Now that we are getting ready for TRICK-or-TREAT this week, following are some safety tips all parents may consider:
Enjoy and have a fun filled, safe and candy eating Halloween…
