Reenactment Of The First Halloween

Halloween commemorates the arrival of the first pumpkin off the Mayflower in 1620.

Right?

I suppose I don’t really know where Halloween comes from.

Here is the Wikipedia entry on the origins of Halloween.

That’s as likely a source as any other on the matter.

If you enjoy Halloween, I hope you have a good time today.

Don’t take any apples with razor blades in them.

  1. Alternatively, it’s possible that the pumpkin was here to greet the people arriving on the Mayflower. That’s what the welcoming smile would suggest. Were there pumpkins in England? Or, did the Native Americans introduce the pumpkin to the encroachers? So many things to ponder on this Halloween.

  2. Find some time alone to think these things out.
