Candy. What am I talking about? That's right. Halloween.
We all know about Halloween. It's one of my favorite holidays.
But do you know how Halloween started? Do you know that it began
over 2,000 years ago? In England and Ireland, October 31st was the
last day of the year. It was called Samhain (SOW-in) which means
summer's end. The Celts used this day to give thanks for their harvest.
It has changed a bit since then but you may be surprised at the origins
of this holiday.
