WHalloween fun factW
So back in the day, Pagans used to burn jack-o-lanterns on Samhain to ward off evil spirits. Samhain, being on the night of the 31 of October. Not to name names, but cultures, religions plunked other holidays, such as Halloween on top of Pagan holidays to crowd out and overshadow Pagan celebrations. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas and Halloween, but come on dudes, that’s mean. Anyways, if you are interested in a little history of the jack-o-lantern, Better Homes and Gardens has a very interesting (and short) article.
How do you like to decorate for Halloween?
