Colours of Halloween

 

Black cat. Orange pumpkin.

White ghost. Green-eyed monster.

Black, orange, white, green.

These are the colours of Halloween!

Set the spirit flying on the Halloween night! Here we have some ideas: Carve the pumpkin, light the candles, go trick or treating or just read these  monster riddles to your kids.

 I am a monster that has been on a diet. There is no fat on me! Or muscle either! You might say that I am all skin and bones –without the skin. I rattle when I walk. And my teeth chatter when I talk.   I come from far, far away. Most people think I am green and hideous. But really I am not so bad. I am just looking for a few Earthlings to put in my zoo back on my home planet.
Who am I?______________________ Who am I?_______________________
 I walk through walls as I please.  Sometimes you can see me and sometimes you can’t. I moan and I groan. I rattle chains. You find me in old houses, graveyards, and castles.  Most of the time, you would never guess I was a monster because I look just like you. But once a month, I let my hair down and howl at the moon.  But beware! If I bite you will become like me.
Who am I?_______________________ Who am I?_______________________
 I was wrapped in white and buried in my tomb a long time ago.Now, I wait in the dark with my golden treasures all around. Outside the sand piles high over top my tomb.
Who am I?______________________

 Dressed in black, I brew potions, I cast spells, and I put curses on people. If you bother me or my cat, you’ll sit on a lily pad and eat flies.  I live under bridges and in caves. I eat travelers that pass my way. I am large and ugly. I carry a club. Think of a word that rhymes with ‘roll.’
Who am I? Who am I?

Welcome! Have a seat. Dinner will be served shortly. Sorry we don’t have any garlic bread. I can’t stand it. What am I drinking you ask? Don’t worry . . . it’s . . um . . . grape juice. Now just relax while I look at your neck. 

Who am I?_______________________

Proud to be a teacher!

What a great Halloween Party!  We had lots of witches, fairies, vampires, ghosts, pumpkins and other Halloween characters. It was a delightful evening with lots of laughter. Kids were so excited, they danced, sang, coloured, watched funny Halloween stories and  Snow White (the Host) gave them „little presents”.  Thank you for your participation!

Happy Halloween!

Who’s that knocking on my door
I must admit I’m little scared,
I open it and what do I see,
A scary old witch and she’s laughing at me
Hee hee hee

Who’s that knocking at my door
I must admit I’m a little scared
I open it and what do I see
A green monster and he’s growling at me.
GRRRR

Now I’m walking out that door,
I’m not gonna be scared no more,
I’m in my costume and I’m ready to be
The one who’s scaring you
BOO!

The Origins of Halloween

Halloween is one of the oldest holidays with origins going back thousands of years. The holiday we know as Halloween has had many influences from many cultures over the centuries. The holiday originally comes from the Celts, who celebrated New Year on November the 1st and they had to store all the crops for a cold winter. For the Celts, winter was a dark time of year with fewer daylight hours. It was also a season associated with death. They believed that on the night of October 31, ghosts were able to come back to earth. The ghosts were not the friendly variety; instead, they came back to damage crops and torment the living. Since the barrier between the world of the living and that of the dead was thinner on October 31, this was the day when Celtic priests made predictions for the future.

Samhain” was the name of this autumn harvest festival.  Samhain means roughly in Old Irish “summer’s end,” and recognizes the fall harvest, and the separation of the end of the “lighter half” of the year from the beginning of the “darker half” of the year. November is the beginning of the “dark half” and is thus the beginning of half of the year, considered to be New Year’s Day for the Celts.

The Celtic priests were also known as the Druids, and they made Samhain a big event by lighting large bonfires. The Druids also dressed up in costumes that were made from animal heads and skins. When they were finished with the Samhain celebrations, the Celts re-lit the fires in their homes from the flames of those sacred bonfires. They thought it would help to keep them safe and warm all winter.

The Use of Costumes on Halloween

The use of masks and costumes was a practice of the Gaels who were mimicking the spirits in an attempt to quiet them. In Scotland young men wore masks, veils, or black painted faces while wearing white clothing. In the 19th and 20th centuries, children dressed in guises or costumes would go door to door seeking coins or treats.

Halloween Nowadays

Every late November, people in every house hang a least one ornament on their doors, to get in the spirit of the holiday. There are more than one ornamentation options and everybody decorates his house just as he pleases. The most “notorious” ornaments is the candle-pumpkin. It’s practically a pumpkin emptied on the inside and two eyes and a mouth are cut on its shell, and a candle is placed inside. Another way of decoration is the ghost and crown on the door. It’s a ghost standing in the middle of the crown made out of synthetic grass and small Halloween Pumpkins.

Trick or Treat

Another Halloween habit is trick-or-treating. It’s a game for the kids, they put on masks of ghosts, witches, zombies or scary monsters and go from door to door yelling out: Trick or Treat. It means that either you give them a treat or they play a trick on you. The most preferred treats are candy, chocolate or any other kinds of sweets and sometimes pumpkin pie and fruit salad.But no matter what they do, people always find a way to get into the spirit of the holiday, like everyone else should!
