Teacher. Hello everybody! Today we have gathered here (in our town of Halloween) to speak about one of the most interesting and unique holidays — Halloween. In our town we celebrate Halloween every day, but in other cities people celebrate it on the 31st of October. If you don’t want to meet evil spirits in your home all year round, you should celebrate this holiday. As you know, this festival is impossible without witches, goblins, and other pretty beings.

I think that you should get to know our townspeople. You need to do a crossword puzzle. (Group work)

1. A person who is partly alive, without any feelings or interests in what is happening (zombie);

4. A woman who has a tail of a fish instead of legs and who lives in the sea (mermaid);

5. A very big hairy man who lives in the mountains (yeti);

6. A creature who is a man when the sun shines but when the moon appears he transforms into a wolf (werewolf);

7. A small man who has hairy legs and does not wear shoes (hobbit);

2. The spirit of a dead person that is seen or heard by somebody still living (ghost);

3. A dead person who comes out at night and drinks the blood of living people (vampire);

6. A woman, usually an old woman, who has evil magic powers (witch);

8. An animal that lives in the sea or in the ocean and scares fishermen from time to time (sea monster);

9. A creature that comes from another planet (alien);

10. A small, ugly creature which usually enjoys causing trouble (goblin);

11. A small creature with wings and magic power (fairy).

Teacher. I think that it’s time to know the history of Halloween. Let’s watch video (3:12). After screening you are going to have the next task.

Take shits of paper and fill the gaps

Over 2.000 years ago people called the Celts lived in what is now Ireland, the UK, and parts of Northern France. The Celts believed that the night before the New Year was a time when the living and the dead come together. More than a thousand years ago the Christian church named November 1 All Saints Day (also called All Hallows). The night before All Hallows was called Hallows Eve. Later the name was changed to Halloween. Like the Celts, the Europeans of that time also believed that the spirits of the dead would visit the Earth on Halloween. The tradition of Halloween was carried to America by the immigrating Europeans. On Halloween in Europe some people would carry lanterns made from turnips. So people began putting candles inside pumpkins and using them as lanterns. The children knock on doors and say trick or treat”.

Teacher. I'd like you to meet Jack O'Lantern. He is the Pumpkin King. Jack O'Lantern legend goes back hundreds of years in Irish History. Many of the stories, center round Stingy Jack.

Task 4

 «Jack O'Lantern»

Open the brackets. (Pair work)

Here's the most popular (popular) story.

Stingy Jack was a miserable, old drunk who took pleasure in playing tricks on just about everyone: family, friends, his mother and even the Devil himself. One day, he tricked the Devil into climbing up an apple tree. After the Devil climbed up the tree, Stingy Jack hurriedly placed crosses around the trunk of the tree. Unable to touch a cross, the Devil was stuck in the tree. Stingy Jack made the Devil promise him not to take his soul when he died. Once the devil promised not to take his soul, Stingy Jack removed the crosses, and the Devil climbed down out of the apple tree.

Many years later, Jack died, he went to the pearly gates of Heaven and was told by Saint Peter that he was mean and cruel, and had led a miserable, worthless life on earth. Stingy Jack was not allowed to enter heaven. He then went down to Hell and the Devil. The Devil kept his promise and would not allow him to enter Hell. Now Jack was scared. He had nowhere to go, but to wander about forever in the dark Netherworld between heaven and hell. He asked the Devil how he could leave, as there was no light. The Devil tossed him an ember from the flames of Hell, to help Stingy Jack light his way. Jack had a Turnip with him. It was one of his favorite foods, and he always carried one with him. Jack hollowed out the Turnip, and placed the ember the Devil had given him, inside the turnip. From that day onward, Stingy Jack roamed the earth without a resting place, lighting his way as he went with his "Jack O'Lantern".

On all Hallow's eve, the Irish hollowed out Turnips, rutabagas, gourds, potatoes and beets. They placed a light in them to ward off evil spirits and keep Stingy Jack away. These were the original Jack O'Lanterns. In the 1800's a couple of waves of Irish immigrants came to America. The Irish immigrants quickly discovered that Pumpkins were bigger and easier to carve out. So they used pumpkins for Jack O'Lanterns.

Teacher. Some people like reading about ghosts, monsters and other creatures, some people like to watch films about them. Somebody tells interesting stories. Read the text quickly, pay attention to details.

A ghost is here!

On the 13th November 2015, Ivanka’s aunt was on holi­day in Britain. She was with a group of tourists. They were going to visit an old English castle not far from London.

The day was gloomy. It was drizzling. When the group entered the castle, the light disappeared.

At that moment the aunt saw a woman wearing dark clothes. This strange woman was very big and she did not have... a head. The aunt began to cry but suddenly the light was switched on again and the poor woman saw a guide on the place of the woman. “Oh, you’ve seen Lady in Black, our local ghost”, the guide explained. He continued, “Do not worry, this lady is very kind but she likes to scare our visitors”.

The aunt was really shocked. But now she tells this story to everybody who wants to listen to her. She thinks that she had a nice adventure and she is going to come back to the castle.

Task 5 And now find and correct mistakes in the following sentences:

  1.   Ivanka’s aunt visited Great Britain in 2010 (2015)
  2.   She was alone (with other tourists)
  3.   The palace was not far from Edinburgh (the castle/ London)
  4.   The aunt saw a woman without hair. ( head)
  5.   The aunt was brave (scared)
  6.   Ivanka’s aunt does not want to travel any more (she wants to return to Great Britain)

Teacher. You’ve got the texts. They are very strange. Find out what they say.



Task 6

There are some interesting facts about Halloween

Black and orange are the international colors of Halloween. Black, of course, is a sign of death, gloom, and the foreboding night, which are all associated with Halloween. Orange is a traditional emblem of fortitude, survival, and power, which signify the harvest, and colors of fall. Halloween is where death (winter) takes over from the life-giving fall harvest, hence the mixtures of black and orange come festival time.

Trick or treat has a short history. In 19th century Scotland and Ireland, there is some record of children travelling door-to-door praying for souls or performing for money or cakes on All Hallows Eve. However, the tradition is a short step from the medieval practice of souling, in which beggars went door-to-door on October 31 to pray for souls in return for food. The food given was often a Soul Cake, which was a small round cake, which represented a soul being freed from Purgatory when the cake was eaten. Today Trick or Treat “give us a treat or we’ll pull a prank on you”.

The first Jack O’Lanters were actually made from turnips by the Celts to ward off evil spirits during Samhain. The Celts would hollow out turnips then carve faces in them and place candles inside. The turnips were then either place in the windows to keep evil spirits from entering a home or carried around as lanterns. This tradition eventually melded with the North American tradition of carving pumpkins.

Teacher. Thanks children! You were brilliant today! It’ time to say goodbye. And remember: everything can happen at Halloween. It’s a magic time!  I hope you liked this evening.

Pupil. It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright.
And we shall see what can’t be seen

On any other night!
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls
Grinning goblins fighting duels
Werewolves rising from their tombs,

Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,

For all tonight it’s Halloween!
