About Halloween

Oct 24 : 07 days till Halloween

Did you know that another Jack-O-Lantern legend speaks of the early Celts who would carry a lantern when they walked on the eve of October 31st?

These lanterns were carved out of big turnips and the lights were believed to keep the evil spirits away. Children would carve faces in the turnips and these turnip lanterns were called “jack-o-lanterns.

The holiday of Halloween dates back to the Dark Ages. Once truly spooky traditions have morphed over the years into much more light-hearted (but still mischievous) celebrations. Here is a fun look at some of the facts and folklore that describe how All Hallows Eve came to be celebrated as Halloween. Join us for a new Did You Know? each day as we count down to Halloween.

Halloween will be celebrated on Sunday October 31st.
