Trick or treat: a history of Halloween (EBOOK)

Campus might seem a little more spooky today than normal. You may have seen a cloak laden vampire or come across a zombie or two while walking the halls near the Distance Learning office. It all might seem quite peculiar, and you might wonder what possesses people to dress up and decorate in such an eerily, creepy way.  In the book Trick or treat: a history of Halloween Lisa Morton traces the unique American holiday to its Celtic and European Catholic origins as a harvest festival and celebration or saints to its modern day expressions through popular culture and of course trick or treating. The book also looks to the future as the spirit of Halloween spreads beyond the US borders to other countries and cultures.

Only students brave enough, or perhaps those interested in History and Sociology should read this eBook
