There’s only one thing that can possibly pop-up on your mind when you hear the phrase "trick-or-treat" and, of course, it surely goes for Halloween.
Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain more than 2,000 years ago. It was celebrated annually on November 1, and people believed that on the night before November 1, the dead returned to earth as ghosts. To keep the wandering souls out of their homes, people left food and wine on their doorsteps. In the eighth century, the Christian church turned the holiday into All Saints’ Day, and in the 1950s, Halloween took the form we know today - on the last night of October, the streets were filled with children walking around to gather delicacies. Nowadays, the holiday has become the second most commercial after Christmas.
In St. George International School and Preschool we value and respect the richness of each culture, and in addition, whenever we have the opportunity, we have fun from the heart and soul. That's why our corridors yesterday were filled with many superheroes who were ready to save the world from all sorts of eventual craziness. And although some of the planned classes had to be suspended in the name of the new regulations, the good mood, jokes and banter were on top level!
And which one do you choose, trick-or-treat?
