Ghosts of Halloween Past

Food For Thought

When I was in grade school, we had a different spelling list each week. The list consisted of 10 new words we were to learn to spell, and five review words from past lists. During October, the list was sure to include Halloween, which, at that time, was officially spelled with an apostrophe between the double E because, it was pointed out to us, the word was a contraction for “All Hallows Eve.” I’m afraid I didn’t notice just when that apostrophe was dropped, I just know it’s been missing it for quite some time.
