Description:

Many children dress up in costumes and go door-to-door saying “Trick-or-Treat”, some dressed in pretty princess costumes and others competing to see who can appear more ghoulish. There’s Halloween parties, decorations, movies, costumes, treats, etc. the list goes on. But where did it originate from? How did it become the monstrous event it is today?

The History Channel takes viewers on a haunted hayride in this spooky adventure of The Haunted History of Halloween. It examines the origins of the celebration. Harry Smith explores the mystery of Halloween as he dives into approximately 3,000 years of excitement that traditionally unravels each year. As the leaves begin to change and Fall embarks upon us, so the spooky stories, costumes, and decorations.

The Haunted History of Halloween reveals how several religious groups have attempted on many occasions to co-opt the festival. Smith unravels like a mummy the several layers to the spooky holiday and how it has changed over the years. Why do we carve pumpkins? What are the significance if any, behind them?

Sit back, relax and grab a few treats while you divulge into the history of the entertaining holiday. Take a moment to reminisce about your favourite Halloween tale. For me, there is one particular house that haunts me to this day, it still sends shivers up my spine when I think about it. I crept up the stairs with my brother, openly for what I thought was a decoration to jump out and scare me. I don’t think my feet touched a step as I leaped down them screaming. The memories of a great Halloween.
