Michelle of Rambling Woods posted a terrific explanation on the origins of Halloween. Stop by and check it out. The National Geographic video really does a great job of giving you the history of the holiday.
I always had the hardest time picking a costume for Halloween. More often than not, I was a witch... a nice witch, a pink haired witch, a warty witch, a plain ol' witch.
Other teachers were a lot more creative than I was.
The kids took Halloween very seriously but I always reminded them to brush their teeth and not eat too much of their candies at one time. I wonder just how many heeded my warnings.
I hope the four bags of candy I bought for tomorrow is enough. How many bags did you buy?
