Where does Halloween come from? What do people actually celebrate there? And wears that mask? At least 2 of these Halloween quiz questions are answered in this quiz.
Of all the seasonal festivals, Halloween is not only the spookiest, but also the most mysterious. What exactly is it that is celebrated? Is it the festival of ghosts, witches or vampires? And where does all the spookiness actually come from?
Probably because it hasn’t been celebrated in German-speaking countries for very long, many people in this country don’t know the answer to these questions right away. But Halloween has become very popular in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, not least among children, because Halloween also means lots of sweets!
But there is much more to celebrating Halloween than dressing up and going around the house demanding sweets, as nice as that is in itself. But there’s also DIY Halloween decorations, such as hollowed-out pumpkins or Halloween cards, an imaginative Halloween party and Halloween games make for great spooky fun.
This Halloween quiz questions are suitable for children and adults as part of your Halloween celebration. Possible rule for additional motivation: for every correctly answered question you get a candy from the ghost that haunts your house 😉
