Lots of bloggers are posting histories of Halloween today. Here’s a small sample, ranging from the Christian to the Socialist, from the synthetic to the sarcastic:
Late Update (Halloween Bonus): It’s not a history of the holiday so it doesn’t fit with the other links, but Syd Lexia’s history of McDonald’s Halloween “Happy Pails” is too good to pass up.
Thanks for the shout out. As a Christian, I am embarrassed at how many shallow and totally false histories are put forth on this topic. Alas!
