Halloween is a fun celebration of masks and ghost figures and mechanized doorbell witches cackling, as also a highly anticipated evening of trick-or-treating. The ancient ritual of appeasing departed spirits is today kids dressing up and strolling the neighborhood seeking candy in their jack-o-lantern buckets. But what exactly is Halloween?
“Halloween, or Hallowe’en (a contraction of All Hallows’ Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.”
Halloween is about embracing the light around us. It is a time for harvest and celebration, to ward off fear (like the fear of math, shall we say) and to seek enlightenment. As always, eTutorWorld is eager to connect with you and help you get over all your learning fears and to make each academic year as bright as it can possibly be. And with eTutorWorld on your side, you will no longer have to double, double burn the midnight oil!
