The Haunted History of Halloween

The holiday is fast approaching but how much do you actually know about what we now call Halloween?  On Saturday October 24 at 1:30 pm  PPHS member Patricia Turner will present a multi-media presentation of the history behind the second most popular holiday in the US.

Do you know where the word "Halloween" comes from?   How about the origins of "trick-or-treating"?  And bobbing for apples?  Come to History House and find out!
There will be a short meeting prior to the presentation and the drawing for the beautiful quilt will take place.  You can still pick up your raffle tickets at the Porter Town Office.
