Did you know???

Halloween originated from a Samhain, Ireland’s Celtic festival, which celebrates the end of the harvest season.

Samhainophobia is the fear of Halloween.

In Medieval Europe, owls were thought to be witches, and to hear an owl’s call meant someone was about to die.

Halloween is thought to have originated around 4000 B.C., which means Halloween has been around for over 6,000 years.

Before  carving pumpkins for Jack-o-Lanterns to celebrate Halloween people used to carve turnups!

Both Salem, Massachusetts, and Anoka, Minnesota, are the self-proclaimed Halloween capitals of the world.

 Keene, New Hampshire hold the record for the most lit jack-o’-lanterns on display  (30,581)!

Halloween has had various nicknames through the ages: All Hallows’ Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool,Snap-Apple Night, Samhain and Summer’s End.
