Happy Halloween from the JETTEAM






Halloween which occurs on October 31st is a colorful and festive holiday. Children and
 adults too, dress up in costumes and go door to door to collect goodies such as candy treats. Halloween always falls on the evening before the Christian Holy Day, otherwise known as All Saints Day, which occurs on November 1. Since All Saints Day was known as All Hallows' Day, October 31 was named All Hallows' Eve (meaning the evening before All Hallows' Day).


 
 
It was believed that the dead souls roamed the earth on Halloween and needed to be appeased. The tradition called "mumming", which originated in the Middle Ages, was practiced on certain holidays, Halloween being one of them. Mumming required dressing up in costume and performing short skits or plays for food and drink. As time went on, the tradition of giving candy "treats" to the children in costume developed.
