Halloween
A favorite holiday among kids, and many adults, Halloween is an ancient celebration that blends Druid and Christian customs. Long associated with spirits and ghosts, Halloween today is a reason to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat for candy.

Halloween is the time of Ghosts, Goblins, Gravestones and Graveyards. Of Spooks and Spirits and silly-fun tricks. Of Witches and Warlocks and Scary Black Cats. And Candy Corn, Jelly Apples, Pumpkins and Bats.

Come visit our Halloween celebration for some holiday fun. We’ve got Dancing Skeletons, Halloween stories, some ghosts, goblins and “jack-o-lanterns”, holiday pictures for the kids to print and color, and some tasty Halloween recipes to make and enjoy. We hope you find something you like!
