This isn’t exactly breaking news this morning, but SyFy’s 31 Days to Halloween promotion started me thinking about the whole concept of why we celebrate Halloween. While doing a little research, I came upon the story that inspired the Jack O’Lantern and found it so interesting I decided to write about it. You can read about it in Halloween History: How the Jack O’Lantern was born .
I’m not sure if I will do anything for Halloween, besides watching a few spooky shows. When my kids were little we added a few decorations and visited a haunted house or two, but it was never a big deal (other than the trick-or-treating part) at our house.
What about you? Do you have Halloween traditions that your family can’t miss out on? I’d love to hear your stories.
