Transcript of Vampires

How it Started
Halloween History
and Vampires

by Katelyn Case
Some people had crazy ideas of where vampires lived, though we know they are fake, people actually believed in them.
People made up places where they thought vampires were from.

Some people thought they were from the underworld, graveyards, and even Mexico!
Why we Celebrate
Halloween was made to celebrate the end of Autumn and the start of Winter.
It was also used to celebrate the Harvest.
Halloween was called All Hallows Eve.
It was started by christians.
This was a way for the poor to beg for food.
Up until the early 1930's it was called souling. It was started in Europe.
People were desperate so they threatened to play a trick on the home if they did not get food. Now we call it trick-or-treat.
Trick-or-treating became popular in the 30's.
People from Europe brought the tradition to America.

There was a man named Stingy Jack. He is a "myth". The story says that he made a deal with Satan, that when he would die, he would not go to Hell. If you are a believer you know that is not how it works.
After Jack died, he was not allowed to
go to Heaven or Hell.
Jack was forced to walk
the Earth with only a little light,
until the end of the Earth.
People believe that all vampires came from one vampire.
There was a man named Ambrogio, who had curses, and blessings that made him a vampire.
Blood was actually used to write poems.
Vampires were from Greece.
Vampires would never die.
Why we carve pumpkins
In many countries, they carved turnips, but in America, we carve pumpkins.
America did not want to copy.
Pumpkins were supposed to look like people, but things were modified over the years.
Stingy Jack is the reason why we put candles inside the pumpkins.
People wore costumes to wart off spirits.
