Did You Know? Although Halloween is a modern holiday, fall festivals are as old as civilization. For thousands of years, people celebrated and gave thanks for the abundance of the harvest. and to this day feasts are held on farms and in pumpkin patches during this time of year. Although they are no longer spiritual in nature, many of the elements of Halloween – such as protecting against evil spirits – remain as a part of folklore.
