1. Halloween is one of the oldest festivals in
Great Britain.
2. Halloween is celebrated on October 31st.
3. The full name of the festival is “All Hallows
4. About 99% of pumpkins sold in Britain are
used as lamps at Halloween.
Everything started a very long time ago, in the
5th century, in the place where today is Great
Britain and Northern France. At that time the
Celts lived there and they celebrated New
Year with a festival called “Samhain” on
November 1st. It was a holiday of the end of
the “Sun Season” and the start of the “Dark
and Cold Season”. People made lamps of
pumpkins and candles and said: “These
lamps help the sun to live in winter”.
In the year 835 the Roman Catholic Church
made November 1st a church holiday of all
saints who do not have a special day in the
year. This holiday was called “All Saints
Day” or “All Hallows Day”.
People started to celebrate another holiday
on October 31st: “All Hallows Eve” (the night
before “All Hallows Day”). Now we call this
festival “Halloween”.
People strongly believed that
Halloween is the night when
communication between the
worlds of the living and the dead
can be. Dead people visit our
world as witches, goblins,
ghosts, black cats and
Jack-o-lanterns – pumpkins with lighted
candles inside which were used to frighten
away evil spirits. According to an Irish legend
a man called Jack can’t enter neither heaven
nor hell. So instead, he has to walk in the
darkness with his lantern until Judgment Day.
Many years ago people used
turnips and potatoes in making
lanterns. Now all over the world
pumpkins are used.
1. Cover the pumpkin with the cap
2. Take a huge yellow pumpkin, cut off the cap.
3. Put the candle inside the pumpkin.
4. Light the candle.
5. Hollow out the inside.
6. Cut a nose, eyes and a mouth.
Costumes – on Halloween people wore
masks and costumes when they left homes
after dark so that the ghosts would mistake
them for other evil spirits. The most popular
costumes nowadays are ghosts,
witches and skeletons.
The colours of Halloween are
orange ( the colour of harvest)
and black ( the colour of death
and darkness).
• A) a witch
• B) a bat
• C) a crescnet
• D) a rat
• E) a gnome
• F) a ghost
• G) a wolf
• H) an owl
• I) a black cat
• J) a demon
Trick-or-Treat – many years ago to keep
ghosts and witches away from their houses
on Halloween, people placed plates of food
outside their homes to appease
all evil spirits. And now British
children put on their costumes
and from door to door in the
evening saying: “Trick or Treat”.
And people give them chocolate
and sweets.
