Everyone knows where Christmas came from, and Easter. They know where IndependenceDay came from, and Valentine. But what most people don’t know is where Halloween came from. If you don’t know where Halloween came from, you’re not alone. If you want to find out then you will have to do it yourself.

“Only one is the right answer.”

  1. An ancient Egypt Pharaoh would go to house to house dressed as the god “Ramon.” He would invite himself in and would eat the food they have. And if they don’t give them any thing the Pharaoh would say. “Tonight you will join the spirits.” And the Pharaoh will leave.

2. Ancient Origins of Halloween. Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of “Samhain.” They would be cerebrating their 2000th  New Years on November 1st wearing costumes to scare roaming ghosts.

3. In Germany, a festival that happens every year in Germany clebrating their anniversary of their king’s birthday in the month of October 31st 436 years ago. And he would try to steal kids candy from the festival. The kids would hide the candy in their clogs which would drive the king’s spirit out. Image result for hershey's chocolate bar original

4,  Back when Milton Hershey created the Hershey bar, he tried to scare some kids by making them think spirits will follow them if they don’t help Milton promote the Hershey bar. Kids would go house to house giving out Hershey bars. And when they were done, Milton Hershey would pretend to summon away the sprites. People found this out of kids passing the story off to generations of their children.
