  Centennial High students making sure kids get Halloween treats safely Teacher Cecilia Anne Coyne issued a challenge to students in her two Secondary One English classes at Centennial Regional High School: Design a device to distribute Halloween candy safely during a pandemic — and then give an elevator pitch to fellow students describing it. From a pulley fashioned from a repurposed clothesline and a tricked-out hockey stick to a small battery-powered car that delivers treats, the students at the South Shore school delivered. Their ideas were “inventive, impressive, creative and fun,” Coyne said this week. The COVID-19 pandemic means this will be a very different Halloween.

What is Halloween?

Initially a Celtic festival of Irish origin. 3000 years ago, the Celtic calendar did not end on December 31, but on October 31. And that last night of the year was the night of the god of death. This holiday heralded the onset of winter and represented the time when the supernatural world and the rational world came together. Fantastic beings were therefore very close to men.
