"Halloween" (на английском языке)
It’s Halloween
By Jack PrelutskyIt’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 gouns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,
For oh tonight it’s Halloween!
Good evening, dear guests. Welcome to our party! Today we are having a special holiday for the dead – does that seem strange? Perhaps not. In Europe the night of the ghosts and witches was combined with the Christian holiday. As that night fell on October 31, people called it Halloween. This means “hallowed evening” or “holy eve”.
At night on October 31 witches fly on their broomsticks, skeletons rattle their bones, ghosts frighten people, Jack – O’ – Lanterns walk around houses, black Halloween cats play tricks with us.
On Halloween, many boys and girls dress up in deferent costumes and pretend to be goblins, monsters, skeletons, witches or ghosts. Long ago people really believed in ghosts. They thought the dead came back to their homes once a year and walked around all night.
Ghosts can be seen, but not heard. They never leave shadows or footprints. They can walk through closed doors, even walls. They love to live in empty houses.
Some words about witches. They are magic women. Some witches are young but most of them are old and ugly. It was believed they held big meetings every season. One meeting came on October 31. Halloween became the witches night. They had a wonderful time there. They danced in a ring, two together, back to back and wished people bad luck, storm and sickness. They flew to their meetings on broomsticks. But it was not always like this.
Presenter: Well, now we know why witches fly on their brooms, and what about Jack – O’ – Lantern? Look, here it is. Jack – O’ – Lantern got its name from a fellow named Jack, who, according to an old Irish legend was so mean, that he was not allowed into heaven. But poor Jack played tricks on the devil, so he was not allowed into the hall either. Instead, he is destined to wander around forever with his lantern, waiting for Judgment Day.
Jack – O’ – Lantern – Hi everybody. My name is Jack, you know. I’ve been wandering around the earth for hundreds of years. I am so tired. People don’t like me, but I want to talk to them. I am so glad to have come to your party. I know so many interesting stories and won’t go until I tell you one of them. Listen. (Tells the story and comes closer to the spectators)
Once upon a time there lived an old woman. She sat by the fire and she spun waiting for someone to come. But no one came. Soon there was a knock at the door and the door opened and in came two big shoes, two long thin legs, some wide, wide shoulders, some long thin arms, two fat hands and in rolled a pumpkin head.
She looked at the someone and said:
Why do you have such big, big shoes?
Much walking, much walking, - said the someone.
Why do you have such long thin legs?
Much running, much running.
Why do you have such wide shoulders?
Much carrying, much carrying.
Why do you have such fat, fat hands?
Much working, much working.
Why are you here? What is it you want?
I came to get……….YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
Presenter:Isn’t it fun to scare somebody at the Halloween Party. Most of us like being scared in that way. The best time to tell these stories is at night. The best way is to speak softly and slowly.
Presenter – Well, well, well the time for fun has come. We have a lot here to enjoy.
Apples were once thought to be a link between men and the Gods and were often used to tell the future. By putting an apple under your pillow you could dream a wish and eat the apple in the morning. Later people began to use apple in games.
Let’s play the game “Bobbing for apples”. Apples are in a bowl of water. Let someone try to catch an apple with his teeth.
“Get off my hat”. (Draw a big black hat beforehand)
Put the hat on the floor. Players shut their eyes and walk back and forth across the hat when music starts. Whoever peeks is out of the game. Any player on the hat when music stops is out of the game. The last player left wins.
“Find the pumpkin”.
Draw white, yellow and orange pumpkins with funny faces. On the black of the white pumpkins write number 1, on the black of the yellow – 5, orange – 10. Let children find as many pumpkins as they can before “stop”. Sum up the numbers. The person with the most points wins.
Now I suggest that you should guess my riddles.
She always flies on her magic broom,
She always flies around the moon
With a black hat on her head
And what do you think, who is that?
(a witch)
It means bad luck, don’t look at it
If it crosses your path
And what do you think we call it?
(a black cat)
In masks and gouns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat
Tonight we are the king and queen
For all tonight is ………..
Sometimes big and sometimes small
But always round and yellow
When the children make my famous grin
Then I’m a scary fellow
(Jack – O’ – Lantern)
I am a big and round
Once upon a time I grew on the ground
Now I have a mouth, 2 eyes and a nose
Who am I do you suppose?
I see a friendly shining moon
As big and round as a balloon
Soon I will go out on the street
With my friend for our ………….
(trick – or – treat)
By Jack PrelutskyTrick or treat, trick or treat,
Give us something good to eat.
Give us candy, give us cake,
Give us something sweet to take.
Give us cookies, fruits 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 eat.
Presenter.Well, I am very glad to see your happy faces. Bur our party has come to the end.
“October” by John Updike:
The month is amber,
Gold and brown.Blue ghosts of smoke
Float through the town.
Great V’s of geese
Honk overhead,
And maples turn
A fiery red.Frost bites the lawn,
The stars are slits
In a black cat’s eye
Before she spits.At last, small witches,
Goblins, hags,
And pirates armed
With paper bags.Their costumes hinged
On safety pins,
Go haunt a night
Of pumpkin grins.Halloween party

Halloween comes on October 31. It is not a legal or a national holiday. Schools, offices and banks do not close. Halloween is the day or evening before Alhallow’s or All Saints’ Day. Many Halloween stories and games are hundreds of years old. Halloween customs date back to a time when people believed in devils and witches and ghosts. They thought that these evil spirits could do all kinds of damage to property. Some people tried to ward off witches by painting magic signs on their barns. Others tried to scare them away by nailing a piece of iron, such as a horseshoe, over the door.
Now most people don’t believe in evil spirits. They know that evil spirits do not break steps or spill garbage or pull down fences. If property is damaged, they blame lively, naughty boys and girls. Halloween is still a bad night for the police.
American children celebrate Beggar’s Night as Irish children did it in the 17th century. They dress up in Halloween costumes and go out on the streets to beg. The children also put on strange masks or paint their faces to look like monsters.
They carry baskets, boxes or bags from house to house. Every time they come to a new house, they say “Trick or treat!” They mean, “Give us a treat or we will play a trick on you.” The adults put a treat – money or candy – in their bags.
A favourite Halloween custom is to make a jack-o’-lantern. The children scrape out a pumpkin and cut the outlines of eyes, nose and mouth in the side.They light a candle inside the pumpkin to scare their friends. This custom refers to a man named Jack who still wanders around the earth lighting his way with a pumpkin lantern.
At Halloween parties the guests wear every kind of costume. Many of them wear masks. The hosts usually decorate the rooms with paper moons, witches, bats, ghosts and black cats. They set jack-o’-lanterns in the windows.
The guests often tell fortunes. A young girl sometimes pares an apple so carefully that the peeling comes off in a long strip. She throws the peeling on the floor and hopes it will form the initials of the young man she will marry. Many games played at Halloween parties date back to the harvest festivals of very ancient times. The guests often bob for apples floating in tubs of water. The players must keep their hands behind their back and take an apple out of water with their teeth. The game is very funny and difficult, and players usually get very wet.
Halloween is still observed in the British Isles, the USA, Canada and some European countries. It is primarily regarded as a night of magic and merrymaking.

Mike:You just called me immature and you’re talking about Roald Dahl and crocodiles and people with worms on their heads? That’s just silly. I’m talking about advanced wizardry.
Jen:Well, Roald Dahl wrote about the witches long before JK Rowling ever thought about Harry Potter. Harry Potter’s just, he’s such a boring character.
Mike:Boring? He survived Voldemort’s attacks on him at least five times and I bet you couldn’t have done.
Jen:Well, I notice she has to give that explanation in every single book.
