Halloween history

Halloween is here!! In Cesur Las Palmas we have celebrated this tradition in the English lessons.

First of all, we have learnt that it originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people used to light bonfires and wear costumes to protect themselves from ghosts. In the 8th century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1st as a time to honour all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween.

Today in Cesur we have had our own “trick or treat.” Our teacher has organised a Spelling Bee to review the vocabulary related to the parts of the body. She has asked three words to each student and has given a sweet for each right spelling. We all were nervous and afraid of making mistakes, but also had fun!
