3. Listen and read the text. Say whether the sentences after it are true or false. Suggest the true sentences for the false ones.


The story of Halloween goes back to the ancient times. The people who lived in Britain and Ireland thousands of years ago were the Celts. They celebrated the New Year on November 1. Because October 31 was the day when the sun set at its lowest, the Celts believed that the sun entered the underworld for a short time. That’s why the gates of the underworld were open and let the evil spirits appear on the Earth.

The Celts then lit large bonfires, dressed up as witches and ghosts to frighten away the evil spirits. Later, November 1 became a Christian holiday as All Saints Day or All Hallows. The night before that day was the Eve of All Hallows or Halloween.

You need six or more pupils and a large space for the game. Pick a «ghost hunter» (мисливця на привидів) and blindfold him/her (зав’яжіть йому/ій очі). The other players or «ghosts» walk around the ghost hunter. He must try to catch one of them. When he catches somebody, this pupil (or ghost) must wail ([weil] — вити) and moan ([maun] — стогнати) like a ghost. The ghost hunter must guess who the ghost is. If the ghost hunter guesses correctly he or she then becomes a ghost and the pupil the ghost hunter caught becomes a new ghost hunter. If not, the ghost goes free and the ghost hunter must try again.
