In the middle of March I wrote a super successful post about the history and origin of St. Patrick’s day. I wanted to research it because honestly I didn’t know anything about it. Yet I was dressing Morgan in green head to toe! That post ended up launching a series of posts after I received multiple comments to create a post for each holiday. I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway. What a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. You can read all of the past posts below:
I learned so much from doing these posts, and I found that I really enjoyed researching and writing them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Spirit Of Halloween To Your Toddler. Because so many countries and cultures have their own Halloween/All Saints Day celebrations I focused on how we celebrate Halloween here in the United States.
I would once again like to thank my wonderful friend Google. As always Google was able to steer me in so many fascinating directions while researching this history. Prior to my research I had no idea why we would dress is costumes, carve pumpkins or say trick or treat on Halloween. I hope you truly learn as much as I did.
