  1. Dear Ms.Seitz
    I have learned that halloween started in 2000.People left food on porches and when they needed to go out they would be dressed up as a ghost.

  2. Dear, Ms. Seitz
    I learned why we carve pumpkins for Halloween!
    People started carving pumpkins because, they believed that the faces would scare the evil spirits away.

  3. Dear Ms. Seitz,
    Did you know this about Halloween?

    People came to believe that on October 31, the worlds of the living and dead overlapped before the start of the new year. October 31 became All Hallows Eve. Have you ever heard “Never take candy from strangers?” Well… On this day of the year suddenly you can!

    Haunted houses were made for fun raisers, our just to make some extra cash.
    Poor children in Britain and Ireland went door-to-door on All Hallows Eve and received food in exchange for the promise of praying for the giver’s dead relatives on All Saints Day.
    P.S. Have a happy Halloween!

    I learned that Halloween came from a long generation to America , and they called Halloween Hallows Eve ,also they thought that on that day ghosts would come and bring food by their door.

  8. Dear,Mrs.Seitz

    One of the things I learned was that Halloween was called All Hallows Eve, and also they carved turnips into Jack’-o’-Lanterns to keep the evil sprits away.

  9. Dear Ms.Seitz
