Happy ? Halloween!
Today is Halloween!
First of all, one thing I must tell you! I am Australian and we don’t celebrate Halloween here! From our point of view Halloween is an American celebration.
In fact the only reason I have heard of Halloween is because of American movies like ET. In the movies children dress up as ghosts and go to each house in their street and collect lollies. This is called ‘trick or treating’.
I also know that Halloween has something to do with ghosts and evil spirits.
So, because I don’t know much about Halloween, I decided we should learn about it together!
