BLACK DOG’S HALLOWEEN
MY HALLOWEEN STORY
Paris’s Halloween Story
One spooky Halloween night, Paris went trick or treating dressed as a Devil, Paris’s favorite halloween costume. “Where is Chelsea?” Paris wondered unhappily, tired of waiting. “Chelsea is late, and I can’t go trick or treating alone!”
Just then, a bush near Paris started to move! The leaves trembled and a cry rang out. Paris was frightened but bravely said, “Who’s there?” Suddenly, a Witch jumped from behind the bush! The Witch shouted, “Boo! Guess who!” Paris knew who it was right away and said, “Chelsea, you silly thing. You scared me! Where have you been all this time?”
Laughing, Chelsea said, “You’re a scaredy cat! Sorry I’m late, but there was a problem with my costume and I couldn’t meet you sooner. Let’s go trick or treating. There’ll be no candy left for us if we wait any longer.” “That’s okay,” Paris said. “Let’s get started. I want some Halloween candy tonight!”
Paris suggested they go east first. Several houses looked promising that way, and Paris remembered that the folks in one particular house gave out great candy and were fun to visit. However, just as they started walking, Paris and Chelsea heard a scary howling noise. “What’s that?” Chelsea said, shivering. All of a sudden a black cat ran out from under some bushes very close to their feet. The cat streaked in front of them, running very fast across the lawn. Frightened, Paris and Chelsea screamed in terror! Nothing else was in sight, and all was quiet. “It’s only a silly old cat,” Paris said. “It won’t hurt us.” Chelsea said with a nervous laugh, “I guess we’re both scaredy cats!” “I guess we are!” Paris agreed, laughing, too. “But let’s get going. We’ll never get any Halloween candy unless we knock on some doors tonight.”
Their hearts still pounding a little, Paris and Chelsea walked along the street. The first house they came to was creepy-looking and very old. It sat back from the street more than the other houses in the neighborhood. A long sidewalk lead up to a front porch that looked like it had seen better days. In the moonlight, the house looked deserted, but lights glowed through the windows. Chelsea whispered, “I think I remember somebody telling me that this house is haunted.” “No way,” Paris said, confidently pushing open the gate. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind rustled the leaves of the willow tree standing nearby and a loud crash came from the porch. Both friends jumped at the noise. “It’s just the wind,” Paris said a little shakily. Although Paris and Chelsea felt a little nervous, they walked slowly through the creaky front gate and up the long sidewalk towards the front door.
The old stairs creaked as they climbed onto the porch. Lying on the floor of the porch they saw a broken flower pot. “That’s what made the loud crash we heard,” Paris said. “See? There’s nothing scary here.” “Yeah, right,” Chelsea said, “Go ahead, Paris. You knock on the door.”
Just then Paris and Chelsea saw a large, strange shadow behind the wavy glass in the front door. Suddenly, the shadow started moving towards them! Before they could knock or even think, the door flew open! A large Vampire stood before them! Paris and Chelsea shouted and jumped back with a start! Chelsea turned to run away.
“Wait! Happy Halloween Devil and Witch!” the large Vampire said, laughing. “Great costumes! Don’t you two want some candy?” Chelsea said, “Hey, I remember that voice! I know who you are! You’re Dean!”
Dean said, smiling. “That’s right, and you’re Chelsea. Welcome to my house. You and Paris are my first guests tonight. How about some treats?”
A little while later, Paris and Chelsea called out “Thanks! Bye, Dean!” as they walked down the sidewalk, their trick or treat bags full of Halloween candy. Chelsea said, “Paris, you knew all along that was Dean’s house, didn’t you!” “Yes, I knew. The trick is on you!” Paris said. “Dean is a friend of my folks and I’ve been to that house before. You know it isn’t safe to trick or treat at a stranger’s house, so that’s why I suggested going there.” “That’s right,” Chelsea said. “It’s better to be safe than sorry!”
So, that Halloween night Paris and Chelsea had a great time trick or treating. And they followed all the safety rules to make it home safely, too. “I can’t wait until next year!” they said together, smiling big smiles. Then Paris and Chelsea walked home, happily planning their costumes for next year all the way.
About 2,000 years ago in the area of the world that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France, lived a group of people called the Celts. The Celts’ lives revolved around growing their food, and considered the end of the year to be the end of the harvest season. So, they celebrated new year’s eve each year on October 31st with a festival called “Samhain,” named after their Lord of the Dead (also known as the Lord of Darkness). Samhain (pronounced ‘sow-in’) was presided over by Celtic priests called Druids.
Back then, winter was the time of year associated with human death. The Celts believed that on the night that marked the end of summer and the beginning of winter, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead blurred allowing ghosts of the dead to return to earth. Celts thought that the presence of the ghosts made it easier for the Druids, their priests, to predict the future. These predictions were an important source of comfort and direction for the Celts during their long, dark, frightening winters.
To celebrate Samhain, the Druids built huge sacred bonfires around which the Celts gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to their ancient gods. During the celebration, the Celts dressed up in costumes consisting of animal heads and skins and tried to tell each other’s fortunes.
The Celts eventually were conquered by the Romans, and by about the year 43 AD two Roman festivals were combined with the Celtic Samhain festival. The first Roman festival was Feralia, a day in late October when the Romans traditionally commemorated the passing of the dead. The second was a day to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. The symbol of Pomona is the apple and the incorporation of this celebration into Samhain probably explains the tradition of “bobbing” for apples practiced today on Halloween.
By 800 AD, the influence of Christianity spread into Celtic lands. In the seventh century, replace the Celtic festival of the dead with a related, but church-sanctioned holiday, Pope Boniface IV designated November 1st as All Saints’ Day, a time to honor saints and martyrs. The combined and updated celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints’ Day) and the night before it, the night of Samhain, began to be called All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween.
