The Origins of Halloween

Halloween began with Celtic Paganism in Britain and the feast of Samhain, a new year. They believed that it was a night where spirits came out, and to appease them, people would give them different treats. Later, it was celebrated in Ireland, Whales, Scotland, and parts of Whales. After Christianity started to take root in other countries, they tried to ban Halloween until both Christians and Pagans incorporated their practices.

  • Wedge peanut halves between the cherry and chocolate kiss to make the ears.
