It is said the veil between the living and dead is growing and that spirits freely roam the earth one day each year: Halloween. How did these ancient beliefs develop into modern customs of trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, and wearing costumes? In this class on Monday, October 18 at 7pm, Maya Rook of Illusory Time and the History Happy Hour series explores the origins of this spooky holiday and the various cultural traditions that weave together into our present-day celebrations of Halloween. This event takes place on Zoom. Please register to receive Zoom login information.
