Teacher: Today is Halloween or the “Holly Evening”! Welcome to our Halloween party!
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, spiders and ghouls
Greening goblins fighting duels
Ghosts riding from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks we haunt along the streets
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,
For tonight it’s Halloween!
Teacher: Today we are going to have a special lesson. We’ll learn much about Halloween, we’ll play and sing and have a fun time. Let’s start then.

Входят ученики старших классов, в костюмах Jack-o-Lanternи Witches.
Jack-o-Lantern: I’ll tell you my story. I invited the Devil to have a drink with me. As I was Stingy Jack, I didn’t want to pay for my drink, so I convinced the Devil to turn myself into a coin that I could use to buy their drinks. Once the Devil did so, I decided to keep the money and put it into my pocket next to a silver cross, which prevented the Devil from changing back into my original form. I eventually freed the Devil, under the condition that he would not bother me for one year and that, should I die, he would not claim my soul. The next year, I again tricked the Devil into climbing into a tree to pick a piece of fruit. While he was up in the tree, I carved a sign of the cross into the tree’s bark so that the Devil could not come down until the Devil promised me not to bother me for ten more years. Soon after, I died. As the legend goes, God would not allow such an unsavory figure into heaven. The Devil, upset by the trick I had played on him and keeping his word not to claim my soul, would not allow me into hell. He sent me off into the dark night with only a burning coal to light my way. I put the coal into a carved-out turnip and have been roaming the Earth with ever since. The Irish began to refer to my ghostly figure as “Jack of the Lantern,” and then, simply “Jack-o-Lantern.”
Teacher: Now let’s play a little. The game’s name is “Pin the nose on the pumpkin”. I’ll put a blindfold on each player as they take a turn to play. I’ll spin you around three times and let you go. You must try to pin the nose on the pumpkin in the correct spot. The other kids can yell "Hot" or "Cold" if they are missing the pumpkin completely.
Witch 1: Witches, witches…The witch is a central symbol of Halloween. When setting out for a Sabbath, witches rubbed a sacred ointment onto their skin. This gave them a feeling of flying, and if they had been fasting they felt even giddier. Some witches rode on horseback, but poor witches went on foot and carried a broom or a pole to aid in vaulting over streams. In England when new witches was initiated they were often blindfolded, smeared with flying ointment and placed on a broomstick. The ointment would confuse the mind, speed up the pulse and numb the feet. When they were told “You are flying over land and sea,” the witch took their word for it.
Учащиеся вместе с Witches поют песню «Five Wicked Witches».
Witch 2: And I’ll tell you that from earliest times people wore masks when droughts or other disasters struck. They believed that the demons who had brought their misfortune upon them would become frightened off by the hideous masks. Now, just by chance if you had forgotten to dress up or could not fool the evil spirits by dressing in animal skins or other disguises, there was another way to avoid them. People set out a TREAT of food and fruit, and provide the wandering spirit with shelter for the night. If the demon spirit was satisfied with your TREAT, it was believed that he would not TRICK you by casting a spell on you.
Witchesпредлагают учащимся конкурс на лучшее произношение скороговорки про ведьм: «Тhrее witсhеs wаtсh thrее swаtсh wаtсhеs. Whiсh witсh wаtсhеs whiсh swаtсh wаtсh?»
Witch 3: Halloween is my favourite holiday and have you known that straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints’ Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating.
Teacher: Our guests told us about Halloween. And now answer my questions, please.
- Do you know when English people usually celebrate this day?
- What do you know about the history of this holiday?
- What are the symbols of Halloween?
- What costumes do the children wear on Halloween?

Halloween is coming.

And be a brown bear.
Halloween is coming.
Who will you meet?
I might meet a princess
Skipping down the street.
Halloween is coming.
What will you do?
I might go trick-or-treating
How about you?
Halloween is coming.

I might see Jack-o-Lantern
Winking at me.
Give us candy, give us cake,
Give us something sweat to take.
Give us cookies, fruit and gum,
Hurry up and give us some.
You had better do it quick
Or we’ll surely play a trick.
Trick or treat. Trick or treat,
Give us something good to it!
