Did your students know about Halloween Coloring Sheets for Celebrating Halloween? Well, the story of Halloween is a tradition of evening celebrations on October 31, and is mainly celebrated in the United States. This tradition originated in Ireland and was carried by Irish people who emigrated to North America. Halloween is celebrated by children wearing spooky costumes, and going around from door to door of neighboring houses asking for candy or chocolate while saying “Trick or treat!” These sayings are a kind of “threat” which means “Give us (candy) or we are ignorant.
Today, children usually no longer bully the homes of people who give nothing. Some children still cheat on homes of people who are stingy by decorating trees in front of their homes with toilet paper or writing windows with soap.
Halloween is synonymous with demons, witches, ghosts of goblins and creepy creatures of Western culture. Halloween is welcomed by decorating homes and shopping centers with Halloween symbols. Halloween originated from the Samhain festival (from the Ancient Irish language) which was celebrated by ancient Kelts. The Samhain Festival is the final celebration of the harvest season in Gaelic culture, and is sometimes called “Kelt New Year”.
The Kelt people who adopted Paganism from generation to generation used the opportunity of the festival to slaughter livestock and stockpile food for winter preparation. The ancient Gael believed that on October 31, the boundary of the world of the dead and the world of the living became open. Dead people endanger living people by carrying diseases and damaging crops. While celebrating the festival, the Gael lit a bonfire to burn the bones of the animals they slaughtered. Gael people wear costumes and masks to pretend to be evil spirits or try to make peace with them.
