Halloween is around the corner

Dear Friends,

Did you know that Halloween may have origins in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain? Although Halloween may be popularly thought of as a day for trick-or-treating and parades, Halloween and the various observations that fall close to it, such as the Day of the Dead, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day, also have a great deal of meaning for those who celebrate.

Holidays are a great opportunity to learn about traditions. Learn more about these holidays in Tanenbaum’s new Halloween Fact Sheet.

In Friendship,
