It's Halloween tomorrow, so here's something about its origin, and a typical Halloweeen song.
Origin: From the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead. Over the millennia the holiday has transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.
And now the song 'It's Much Too Spooky for Me', in case you want to have a bit of fun singing it in the classroom:
spooky - espeluznante
bat - murciélago
scary - aterrador
witch - bruja
jack-o'-lantern - lámpara hecha con una calabaza ahuecada, típica de Halloween (ver imagen arriba)
