Trick or Treat

by Maureen McCabe on October 29, 2005

Beggars Night is on Halloween for the first time in many years in most Central Ohio communities.  According to the Columbus Dispatch Beggars night being before Halloween was because Columbus historically had a Halloween Party on October 31!








According to the Columbus Dispatch, the Columbus Halloween party was discontinued in the 1950′s because it got out of hand!

An Irish Blessing for Halloween

At all Hallow’s Tide, God keep you safe
From goblin and pooka and black-hearted stranger,
From harm of the water and hurt of the fire,
From thorns of the bramble, from all other danger,
From Will O’ The Wisp haunting the mire;
From stumbles and tumbles
and tricksters to vex you,
May God in His mercy, this week protect you.

Celebrating Halloween comes from the Celts who lived in Ireland long ago.
