THIS IS HALLOW'EEN.... HISTORY AND MUSIC

Halloween's Holidays are coming, that's why we have prepared some activities.
Fist of all, where does Halloween come from?

THe following link  from THE HISTORY CHANNEL explains that:



NOW, TRY TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS:
-What was the old name for Halloween?
-WHen was it celebrated? Where are its origins?
-What did people leave at their doorsteps?
-What is "souling"?
-Who brought these traditins to US?

Some of the typical traditions are the famous TRICK OR TREAT, wearing scary costumes and Jack O'Lantern. As you can seen in the following video, there are some of the typical motifs that you will find these days. I hope you enjoy it. It was taken from a film by TIm Burton and it is subtitled.



Which scary monsters does it mention?Do you know the
meaning of the following words? Skeleton, ghost, graveyard, tombstone, haunted, witch, vampire, warewolf.
Here, you've got some extra-links with information about pumpkins and other interesting elemnts:
