Mediocre... This test is the Epitome of Mediocrity. Anyone, who trick or treated for the past 52 yrs w the kids must know something about Halloween. I dressed up as a Professor and go out w the kids so my wife could hand out candy to the future mediocre author who composed this inane compilation of Halloween trivia. At best, I'll grade this w a( C+ ) because you forgot 1 detail about safety and check the bags of candy and anything can harm a child or his/or siblings. Is a matter of factly, We, my wife and I, grade this test out w a big, fat "D", for DISMAL. See you after class. We'll start w A and work our way to Z. This test was as superficial as it gets. Research and practical application, a necessary when composing tests. D++...👎🤔

9/10. Disagree with #4's answer about Halloween originating in Ireland.

#4 is wrong. Samhain/Halloween originated as a Celtic festival. That means that ALL the Celts in what is now France, England, Scotland, and Ireland would have celebrated it. That means 3 of the 4 suggested answers are technically correct. Also, the term "Halloween" (a Scottish word) was not popularized until Robbie Burns poem, "Hallowe'en", was published in 1785. Before that poem, the term "Samhain" was still very much in use. The 1700s was not an option

grahamcarla, I married into the Irish and from my understanding when they say 'turnip' they are talking about a rutabaga or swede, as it is also known. So it would be much easier to carve a large rutabaga and opposed to an actual turnip.

Don’t agree with some of the answers. Origin of Halloween - should be Great Britain although the over-commercialisation of it is the fault of the USA. It was originally the eve of All Hallows or All Saints Day.

9/10 The Royal Pumpkin Family. Sorry, I don't understand the reference. I would tend to disagree with the answer to Q9: When did the use of the word “Halloween” come about? I'd say it started in the 1700s and was popularised in a Robbie Burns poem and in some songs. "It is a Scottish shortening of Allhallow-even "Eve of All Saints, last night of October" (1550s), the last night of the year in the old Celtic calendar, where it was Old Year's Night, a night for witches."

Turnips would be very hard to carve. Good move switching to pumpkins.
