Description

Class Experience

By the end of the class, students should be able to:

💀 Recall some of the basic beliefs of the Celtic people regarding spirits and their purposes.
💀 Describe which modern Halloween traditions and costumes originated with the Celtic people.
💀 Tell how their favorite spooky Pokemon relate to common Halloween decorations and traditions.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
