Halloween Brings a Change of Seasons!

The word Halloween is derived from the term, “All Hallows Eve,” which occurred on Oct. 31. “All Saints Day” or “All Hallows Day” was the next Day, Nov. 1st. Therefore, Halloween is the eve of All Saints Day. Stories abound that the origin of the holiday began around the time of Christ, but in ancient Ireland and Scotland. At this time of year, the animals were brought into shelters, and crops were harvested. This time of change involved a lot of superstition. This annual change of season and lifestyle was marked by a festival called Samhain, which means ‘end of summer.’

Halloween Recipe – a Celebration of our Imagination!

Halloween is the celebration of our imagination and willingness to dance with our neighbors and friends. Halloween is one of the greatest holidays because almost everyone can participate in it. When it comes to donning Halloween gear, there’s a sense of community, of people who all just want to get dressed up in something silly or scary. It is a great time to use your imagination to don a costume that is unique and innovative. It’s our annual chance to live a fantastical existence. Whatever we want to be, we can put on a costume and be it. But for the most part, nothing beats seeing kids all dressed up and excited to go door to door in search of treats. There’s a crisp in the air and a feeling of happiness that peaks on Halloween. Idealistic maybe, but it’s why we will always love the day.

Halloween and the Jack-Oh-Lantern!

The Jack-O-Lantern comes from Irish folklore about a man named Jack who tricked the devil into climbing a tree. Once the devil was in the tree, Jack carved a cross on the trunk preventing the devil from coming down. The devil then made a deal with Jack not to allow Jack into hell after he died if only Jack would remove the cross from the tree. After Jack died, he couldn’t go to hell; and he couldn’t go to heaven. He was forced to wander around the earth with a single candle to light his way. The candle was placed in a turnip to keep it burning longer. When the Irish came to America in the 1800’s, they adopted the pumpkin instead of the turnip. Along with these traditions, they brought the idea that the black cat was considered by some to be reincarnated spirits who had prophetic abilities.

  • Leave to harden. Then melt the white chocolate the same way.
  • Dip each strawberry in the melted white chocolate. Holding the stem, immediately take to wax paper, letting excess drip down and form the tail.
  • Carefully place the eyes and mouth on the ghosts before the white chocolate hardens.

In a hurry? Substitute mini chocolate chips for the dark chocolate and just place on the white chocolate strawberries for eyes and mouth.
