You might wonder why I'm writing about the Halloween holiday in a genealogy blog? Well, I have found that while researching our ancestors, it is important to understand the context of their lives in relation to history. This part of the year has several holidays coming up and Hallowe'en is just the beginning. I was at the store yesterday looking for some Halloween decorations, and low and behold, the store already had their Christmas decorations out and the Hallowe'en decoration selection was getting slim. I attached this video for your enjoyment to learn about the history of Hallowe'en. I didn't know it was originally a Celtic holiday, did you? Watch and learn. Have fun!
