This is a post I published in 2021 and wanted to share it with you again with a few updates.
Many do not know the origins of Halloween. Do you? I had to look it up to find out more about it. I knew it was a pagan ritual but that was all. Here is a link to the origins of Halloween on the history site. Thank you to the History.com site for the use of this information.
Here are some photos from 2021 that I snapped while walking around the neighborhood.
Here is a poem that I wrote in 2013 for Halloween.
If you look in the windows of stores everywhere
You will see all kinds of signs that Halloween is near.
There are ghosts, goblins and pumpkins galore.
And cobwebs and spiders and much more.
There are costumes for princesses so fair,
Or monsters that will instill a little bit of fear.
There will be tons of candies to choose from
To fill all the children’s bags to your houses they will come.
Halloween is a magical and mysterious time.
As I relate all this through this holiday rhyme.
But parents and children, please beware.
Check over all the candy and give your children their fair share.
Children, please remember to be polite and have fun out there.
Halloween is a fun time for children everywhere.
But, please be careful out there!
I hope you enjoyed learning about the origins of Halloween. Hope to see you back real soon. Thank you for stopping by and for your continued support of my books and blog and for all the reviews you post wherever my books are sold.
If you would like to purchase books instead of candy for your children, please click on covers to the right of this post or go directly to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. There are plenty of choices that are better than candy. Don’t you think so? They are fat-free, gluten free, calorie free, dairy free, nut free, casein free, and vegetarian too! What could be better for your precious little and bigger ones? Happy Reading!
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

It’s always interesting to learn where traditions originate. And I love the idea of giving a book instead of candy!
Better for the body especially the teeth! 🤣🥰😬🦷
