Halloween is Approaching

Halloween is a popular festival these days, especially among children, celebrated each year on October 31st. It is believed to have originated more than 2000 years ago in the part of Europe now known as Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Northern France which was inhabited by a group of people called Celts.

The festival was brought to America by the European immigrants and it is now celebrated worldwide. Do you celebrate it in your country?

People decorate their houses with scary decorations. They carve pumpkins and put candles inside transforming them into lanterns, called Jack’o lanterns. Children, and sometimes adults, dress up in costumes and go from door to door treat-or-tricking, asking for candy. Some of the most popular costumes are: witch, ghost, vampire, zombie, and werewolf. Do you like to dress up? Which one is your favourite costume and why?

Happy Halloween!

 

 

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend!

Unlike their neighbours south and north (Alaska) of the borders, Canadians observe Thanksgiving every year on the second Monday of October. On this day (or the day before), families and sometimes friends get together to celebrate the harvest and the blessings from the year before.

Of course, there is no celebration without food! The most common food served on Thanksgiving is roasted turkey with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie as dessert. Very tasty! However, if you don’t eat meat for whatever reasons, there is a substitute for turkey called “tofurkey”, and people constantly come up with new recipes and ideas.

This year, I am thankful for my family – past, present and future. What are you thankful for? What is your favourite holiday celebrated in your country? Why? Is there food involved in the celebration? Leave us a comment bellow with your answers.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend!
