Get your babies, toddlers and young children ready for Halloween with Rainbow Songs!
October is here, and that means one of our favourite days is right around the corner – Halloween! Trick-or-treating, scary songs, and spooky fun with friends – we love it all! Come celebrate Halloween Week in your Rainbow Songs music class from Friday, October 25 to Thursday, October 31 and sing festive songs with us to get you and your little one ready for the season.
As you know, the best part of Halloween is DRESSING UP! Kids and adults alike are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to class during Halloween Week. We’ll make some time at the end of class for you to take photos of these spooky and adorable outfits. We’d love to see your Halloween pics! Be sure to tag @rainbowsongs_ on Instagram and @rainbowsongs1 on Facebook so that we can like and share!
Why do we dress up for Halloween anyway?
Did you know that Halloween originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) to celebrate the end of the harvest before the long, cold winter set in? Celts believed that on the night before the new year (which they celebrated on November 1), the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. They believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth on the evening of October 31, and they would dress up as ghosts, ghouls and wild animals to blend in with the walking spirits. Pretty neat, right?
Over time Samhain evolved into the Halloween that we know today! And since singing is the keystone of any celebration, we’ll be singing awesome Halloween songs for children in class, including “I’m A Crazy Witch”, “Five Little Pumpkins”, and other spooky tunes! Check out our most recent newsletter (handed out in class) for lyrics for these Halloween songs. You can also find lyrics in our online database.
Music for Halloween!
Our sister company, Howdytoons, has some great Halloween song music videos! Check out a playlist online here.
Another great resource – in honour of this most special day, we’ll have all of our Howdytoons Halloween music on iTunes and Spotify on October 21st! The Howdytoons account is online here. Add our songs to your favourite Halloween playlists!
