This video really made me appreciate Halloween and our European heritage in a new way. Enjoy!
"The European tradition of Halloween is not just something people do. It is not some a-historic thing which is disconnected from the world and floats meaninglessly in the air. Halloween has a history, and it is rooted in a culture, our culture. And our culture is rich, deep, complex, and beautiful. As such, we should take pride in it. We should love it, celebrate it, and defend it because our culture unifies us, and that unity makes us strong". - Hugh MacDonald
Snap-Apple Night, painted by Irish artist Daniel Maclise in 1833. It was inspired by a Halloween party he attended in Blarney, Ireland, in 1832.
