Welcome one and all once again to another Getting Into the Spirit! Jordan here and today I'm kind of cheating. I've mentioned many times on the It's All In My Head Podcast that I have a degree in history. History really is a passion of mine. I love learning and history is a great outlet for me to never get bored when learning new things. That being said, today's post is a documentary on the history of Halloween.
We all know that in recent year The History Channel hasn't really been showcasing much history while at the same time trying to bombard us with shows about aliens and pawn shops. However, every once in a while, a hidden gem appears on the channel. This gem is titled The Real Story of Halloween. It first aired in 2010 and is a great introduction to the history of the holiday. The people interviewed for this documentary tend to be academic historians and professors. If you have about 45 minutes to yourself, I highly recommend this documentary.
