"Halloween"

Midi Playing - Horror!

A time for fun and pranks - but how / why did it ever start!
Now this is something that we in Australia do not have,
but I DID do some research to learn :-)

        


Here's how it all began!

Halloween traditions of trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns
were brought to America in the 1840s by Irish escaping the
Great Potato Famine.


On Halloween, Irish peasants begged the rich for food and
played practical jokes on those who refused.
To avoid being tricked, the rich handed out cookies, candies,
and fruit.


A practice that turned into the "present day"
Trick or Treat!

         


Haunting!


A most popular outfit was the white sheet with
eyeholes ... worn over the head ... making
the children look like ghosts.

What a load of fun - Trick or Treating,
Dressing Up and Playing Pranks.

Enjoyed by young and old!
