HALLOWEEN TRIVIA: 10 fun questions related to the spooky holiday!

 

 
HALLOWEEN HISTORY

The earliest known use of the word "Halloween" was in the 16th century. It was spelled "Hallowe'en," a Scottish variant of "All Hallows Eve," the night before "All Hallows Day" (Nov. 1), better known today as "All Saints Day."

Western Christians commemorate the dead on "All Souls' Day" Nov. 2.

In Mexican and Latin America, this coincides with Dia De Muertos (Day of the Dead).
