Halloween pumpkins

Jack-0′-Lanterns

It’s that time of year again to gather in the pumpkins and start carving them into jack-o’-lanterns and have some fun on Halloween night. Halloween observes the yearly ritual of remembering the dead, known as ‘All Hallows Eve’ followed by All Saints Day or the Feast of All saints on November the 1st, and All souls Day on the 2nd of November.

As a child I remember it was the All Souls day we observed and went to the cemetery to light a candle on our family graves and say a few prayers.  For more in depth information about these festival you can consult Wikipedia. and there are many variations to celebrating these days depending on ones religious beliefs.

Halloween night

For the very young children it’s the day of just a lot of Essay Writers fun, making masks, dressing up in costumes, carving out pumpkins and the ‘trick or treat’. Having harvested our pumpkins it was time to get messy, scraping them out to carve out the head.
