Halloween Linky Party!!!
I have a little Raggedy Ann going on, don't you think? :)
Did you know we have Irish to thank for the Halloween? Mhm. they thought of it first. If it wasn't for their celebration of Samhain there would be no Halloween today. Samhain means "summer's end" and it got all that wicked stuff attributed later on through history.
The carving of jack-o'-lanterns comes from the souling custom of carving turnips into lanterns as a way of remembering the souls held in purgatory. But Americans started carving punpkins cause they were much larger and easily available.
Trick-or-treating derived from "guising" which means almost the same as it does now but the difference is that with guising a kid had to perform a "trick" to get a treat. Nowadays it's the other way around. If you don't give out a treat you get tricked. :)
Now it's your turn! Show us your costume, your decorations, your treats or whatever. Anything Halloween is fine with me.
Link your Halloween post below so everyone can visit you and make sure you talk to everyone. Nobody likes a lurker. Unless that's your costume. Then it's ok. :)
