We’re posting up a storm of Halloween projects on MAKE, but a few folks had asked a little about the origins of this holiday, so I found this appropriately name “History of Halloween” over at the History Channel – “Each year, on the last night of October, millions of children across the U.S dress-up in costume and take to the streets for a spooky dose of Trick or Treat fun. But how much do you really know about this haunted holiday?”Link.
