This class will touch on the celebration of Halloween, and how it evolved from the Celtic celebration of Samhain, and how that was a time that it was believed that supernatural beings roamed the Earth. It will also talk about how jack-o-lanterns were lit to help ward off evil spirits. And Stingy Jack is described as a drunk and bad man, who made a deal with the devil.
