Ведучий: Hello, dear guests and pupils! It’s nice to see you today. I have some questions for you. Do you like to celebrate festivals? What festivals do you know? Look at the symbols of our today’s festival and name it. Let’s read it together (всі вимовляють хором назву свята) – It’s Halloween!!! Yes, you are right.
Halloween began as an ancient Celtic festival in Great Britain and Ireland, and has survived most strongly among Irish, Scottish and Welsh communities. Immigrants from these communities carried the tradition to North America where it has gained in popularity. In turn, as part of American pop culture, Halloween has spread in popularity to most corners of the English speaking western world, and increasingly into Western Europe in recent times.
Originally Halloween was a pagan festival, around the idea of linking the living with the dead, when contact became possible between the spirits and the physical world, and magical things were more likely to happen. Like most pagan festivals, long ago it was absorbed into the festivals of the expanding Christian church, and became associated with All Hallows Day, or All Saints Day, which eventually fell on November 1 under the Gregorian calendar. A vigil for the festival was held on All Hallows Evening on October 31. In the vernacular of the times, All Hallows Evening became Hallowe'en and later the Halloween we know today.
According to old beliefs Halloween is the time, when the veil between the living and the dead is lifted, and witches, ghosts and other supernatural beings appear. Many Halloween customs are based on beliefs of the ancient Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in what is now Great Britain, Ireland and Northern France. Every year the Celts celebrated the Druid festival of Samhain, Lord of the Dead and the Prince of Darkness. It fell on October 31, the eve of the Druid New year. The Celts believed that on this night Samhain allowed the souls of the dead to return to their homes as witches, goblins, black cats or in other weird forms. It was believed that evil spirits played tricks on October 31.

The main Halloween activity for children is trick-or-treating. They dress in costumes and masks and go from door to door saying “trick or treat”.
Trick or treat, smell our feet.
We want something good to eat.
The neighbors give children such treats as candy, fruit and pennies so that children do not play tricks on them.

Jack-o-lanterns are pumpkins with face carved into one side. An Irish legend says that Jack-o-lanterns are named after the man called Jack. He could not enter the hell because he had played jokes on devil. As a result, Jack has to walk on the Earth with his lantern until Judgment Day.

Fortunetelling is an important part of the Halloween. For example, you can bake a ring, a coin and a thimble in a cake. It was believed that the person who found the coin would become wealthy. The one who found a ring would merry soon, and the person who found a thimble would never get married. People also believed that there were many ghosts and witches on the Earth and they met on October 31st to worship the devil. Today people do not believe in ghosts, but they like to tell stories about them on Halloween.
