SPECIFIC PURPOSE: At the end of my speech, my audience should understand three important points of the history of Halloween.
THESIS STATEMENT: The three most important points of Halloween can be summed up by looking at its origins, how it came to include jack-o-lanterns and bobbing
for apples, and how it is celebrated today in the 21st century with
trick-or-treating and haunted houses.
When the leaves start turning different colors and falling off the trees, when the temperature starts falling and the sun starts setting a little earlier each day, it makes me think of Halloween.
Most people think all Halloween is about is dressing up and going trick or treating. It didn't start out as a going door-to-door and getting candy event every October 31st. In fact, Halloween originated as a Celtic festival more than 2000 years ago.
When I was a kid, Halloween was my favorite time of the year.
