Historic Tidbit
Everyone knows Oct. 31 as Halloween. Originally, it was “Hallowe’en,” preceding the church festival of Allhallows or All Saints Day on Nov. 1. “Hallow” means “holy” or “sacred” and “e’en” is the abbreviation for “evening.”
From its supernatural associations, it has always been connected with foretelling the future. In English-speaking countries, young people devote the evening to masquerading, partying, fortune telling and door-to-door trick or treating.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
Reminder
Exercise the right to vote Nov. 5. If not sure of one’s polling place, call the Geauga County Board of Elections at 440-279-2030.
