My love for Halloween is fueled by the origins of this beautiful day. This love started with The Halloween Tree. The story follows four children who learn more about how Halloween started while attempting to save the life of their friend. Because of this, every year, I look for new documentaries that give an in-depth look into this holiday.
For this post, I've gathered three of the best documentaries that I've watched over the years. Thank you, YouTube. There are so many documentaries on there, it's crazy.
The first one is called The Haunted History of Halloween. It explores the 3000-year history of the holiday. Can you imagine? It's been around for that long, just in a different form.
The second documentary is called The Real Story of Halloween. Many of these docs are from the History Channel. The film starts off talking about where Halloween is today and then it flashes back to how it all began.
The last one is the History of Halloween. This one looks at the rituals that involve the Halloween celebration we know today and where they came from like: Why do we go trick-or-treating? Why do we dress in costumes? Why do we carve pumpkins? And why do we spend this one night of the year focusing on death?
Which of the documentaries do you like best? Do you know of a documentary that discusses Halloween that I did not feature here? Let me know in the comments section because I'd love to watch it.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Please stop by again tomorrow for a new one.
For now, this is Kate, signing out!
