HALLOWEEN

ON THE EVENING OF THE LAST DAY OF OCTOBER CHILDREN IN THE UNITED STATES CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN, THE TIME OF WITCHES AND GHOSTS.

Until early in this cetury, some people in certain country areas of Britain remembered these instructions on October 31st. This day is called Halloween, the time of witches and ghosts. Some people believed that after dark a traveler might meet a supernatural being. This spirit might take him to the other world. However, if he carried a piece of bread with salt in it, he would be protected. Evil spirits might ttry to harm the milk of the cows. The candle protected them. You ought to rememeber to close all doors and windows. If not, spirits might enter the house and never leave it.

Halloween was originally a Celtic Festival, and it is still celebrated mainly by children, in some parts of Britain as well as in most of the United States.
