Did you know that the way we celebrate Halloween in America today has its roots in Ireland? It’s true! When more than a million Irish natives migrated to the United States during the nineteenth-century potato famine, they brought their customs with them—and that includes many of their Celtic traditions. Cultured Kids will guide participants through the origins of many of our Halloween traditions, from trick-or-treating to carving spooky . . . potatoes? Find out much more, and decorate your very own Halloween spud, in this fascinating exploration of history, migration, and everyone’s favorite holiday.
