Trick or treat to all of our elephant enthusiasts and quilting friends!
This month our dear little elephant is thinking about being a super hero! Perhaps it is his goal to save his cousins, the Asian elephants, who are on the endangered species list?
We are not altogether certain where our brave elephant will put all of the goodies he collects, but he is ready for action at a moment’s notice! He doesn’t appear to have any fear of the creepy bats that are surrounding him!
Most people think that Halloween started as an American holiday. Although we made it a big event and kids are excited for treats collected on October 31st each year, Celtic pagans in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and parts of Britain believed that it was the time that spirits and ghosts came out to haunt. They would make the spirits happy by giving them treats.
Did you know that November 1st is Feast of All Saints and the next day is All Soul’s Day? Early Christians referred to Halloween as the “Eve of All Saints” or “All Hallows’ Eve.”
Halloween started in America when Irish immigrants came and brought the celebration with them. When others in the community saw how much fun the Irish were having, they wanted to participate, and Halloween as we know today became a “new” American celebration!
