Halloween 2009 Lesson Plan

Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic tradition and the Christian holy day of All Saints, but is today largely a secular celebration. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
