Halloween

What is Halloween?
Halloween or All saints eve is a spooky celebration observed every year on the 31st of october, when many people dress up in costumes and go trick or treating. Halloween is also thought to be associated with the Celtic festival Samhain, when ghosts and spirits were believed to be approaching them.

Souling and Guising
Years ago, Instead of Trick or Treat there was Souling and Guising. On All Souls day, The needy’s would beg for pastry’s known as soul cakes. In return they would pray for people’s dead relatives. In Guising, young people would dress up in costumes and accept food, wine, money and any other offerings. In exchange for singing, telling jokes and reciting poems.

What is Samhain?
2,000 years back the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, was celebrated on november 1st. On the 31st of october, people would believe that the dead returned as ghosts and would leave food and wine on there doorsteps. They would wear masks when they left the house so they would be mistaken as fellow ghosts. Days later the Christian church changed Samhain to All Saints Day or All Hallows in the 8th century.  

How do we celebrate Halloween now?
We celebrate Halloween a lot differently than how we use to celebrate back in the days. We celebrate by hosting costume parties, playing trick-or-treat, watching horror movies or visiting asylum houses. People also celebrate with carving out pumpkins to display in there front yard which represent Halloween.

Conclusion
We have learnt a lot of new information and facts about Halloween/Samhain and how we use celebrate back in the days. How do you celebrate Halloween?

Six Photo's, Reading

Today my group and i did reading about old fashioned pictures. We learnt about different filters, props, icons and people that were placed in there pictures, most people were unhappy to take pictures. The six photo's were all placed in the olden days and in each picture there is something special and represents there culture. I enjoyed reading the book Six photo's because we learned about all the people that were placed in the photo's and what there tattoos and clothes meant. 

In this modern picture there is an icon sitting in front of books to represent reading and it’s in our school library. This photo looks different from the ones taken back then because of the new fashioned props and icons.
