Halloween Special

Thousands of years ago, the Celts held a festival for the lord of death.

Many monks believed the lord of death rule the world in winter

They believed when the lord of death came, many evil spirits came with him too

There are different kinds of evil spirits such as goblins, ghosts, witches, and vampires

The Celts did not like evil spirits. They made big fires to drive the evil spirits away.

It was thought that witches had magic power.

It was also believed that witches like to play tricks on people.

Many children like to play trick on people too.

Today children in America have a lot of fun dressing on costumes and going on trick or treating.

People celebrate Halloween on October 31. Now Halloween is a holiday especially fun for children.


五只小南瓜 Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting in a row, the first one says let’s look at the pole the second one says there is a clock on the pole the third one says oh Halloween is here.
The fourth said Let’s go trick or treat. The fifth one says the idea is so neat.

They played many tricks; they got many treats; the five little pumpkins went home very late.
