Halloween has a rich history! Did you know that people used to carve turnips instead of pumpkins? The tradition of trick or treating came around during the 1940’s and 1950’s.
Great link to the history channel. interesting how Christians took over pagan holidays and they morphed into modern day traditions.
Can’t imagine cutting up a turnip for Halloween! Interesting! Video is very informative, too!
