Some would say Halloween has always been scary.
It was first called “All Hallows’ Eve,” and people believed that there were no barriers separating the world of the living from the world of the dead. As a result, many locked themselves in their homes because they feared that ghosts and demons were roaming the streets. If people absolutely had to go out, they disguised themselves in costumes.
Halloween has become a lot more fun today, peppered with costumes, sweet treats and community events.
But, if you’re a parent, it can still generate some anxiety.
