Halloween and Family Home Care

Trick-or-Treat!  It is that time of year again.  Pumpkins, soul cakes, black cats, candy, and costumes are the family traditions that have been around since the early 1900s. It doesn’t matter what era you are from.  The memories of trick-or-treating is a childhood staple in America.

As history goes, Halloween’s origin dates back to the ancient Celtic Festival of Samhain.  This was celebrated 2000 years ago!  It wasn’t promoted in America until the early 1900s.   This day marked the end of summer and the harvest.  It was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.  Kids would wear masks to protect themselves from the spirits.  While we no longer follow those traditions or superstitions, it is a holiday where families gather with their grandkids and grandparents to enjoy.
