When did halloween come to the united states

When did Halloween come to the United States?

  • Halloween was brought to America by Irish immigrants fleeing the Irish potato famine in the 1840’s.

  • The Irish potato famine

    was caused by a blight

    that killed the potatoes.

Potato famine

Potato Famine

  • The Irish potato famine killed

    almost 750,000 people.

    They all died of starvation being

    that their primary food source was the potato.

  • In the years after the famine, scientists discovered that the blight was, in fact, caused by a fungus, and they managed to isolate it. They named it Phytophthora Infestans.

  • Divided into 2 categories

  • Acute porphyrias. These include forms of the disease that cause predominantly nervous system symptoms (neuron porphyrias) and, in some cases, skin symptoms (neurocutaneous porphyrias), as well.

  • Cutaneous porphyrias. These include forms of the disease that cause skin symptoms as a result of oversensitivity to sunlight, but don't affect your nervous system.

What is porphyria

What is porphyria?

  • porphyria is due to the deficiency of one of the enzymes needed to make a substance in the body called heme. Enzymes are proteins that help chemical reactions happen in the body. Making heme involves a series of eight different enzymes, each acting in turn.

  • Heme is a red pigment composed of iron linked to a chemical called protoporphyrin. Heme has important functions in the body. The largest amounts of heme are in the blood and bone marrow in the form of hemoglobin within red blood cells. Hemoglobin gives blood its red color and carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. In the liver, heme is a component of proteins that have many functions, including breaking down hormones, drugs, and other chemicals and generating high-energy compounds that keep liver cells alive and functioning normally.

  • The body makes heme mainly in the bone marrow and the liver. The process of making heme is called the heme biosynthetic pathway. Each step of the process is controlled by one of eight enzymes. If any one of the enzymes is deficient, the process is disrupted. As a result, porphyrin or its precursors—chemicals formed at earlier steps of the process—may build up in body tissues and cause illness.

  • Hypertrichosis is also known as "Wolfitis", refers to a condition of excessive body hair growth.

  • Diseases such as rabies

  • People accidently ate poisonous plants which made them hallucinate. Ergot mold



  • Genetic research has linked the condition to the X chromosome. That means if a woman carries the gene, she has a 50-50 chance of passing it on to her offspring, whether she has a boy or a girl. If a male carries the gene, 100 percent of his female children will be affected, but none of his sons.

  • The gene is vestigial.

Salem, MA

  • A little girl and her friend had fits

  • Were being told stories by the family’s maid

  • Many people were accused and eventually 25 were killed.

  • Ergot Mold was most likely culprit.



  • The popular icon of a witch is an ugly old woman riding across the sky on her magic broomstick and wearing a pointed hat. But as with all mythologies there is an element of truth behind the image. Witches did ride brooms, after a fashion, the brooms were magic, in a way, and the pointed hat was the mildest of the punishments inflicted on them for their activities!



  • Ergot, in high doses, can be lethal, a fact that led to the rise in popularity of wheat bread, which is resistant to ergot mold.

Happy halloween scary powerpoint

During the time leading up to the witchcraft trials in Europe, the staple bread was made with rye. In a small town where the bread was fresh baked this was just fine, but as Europe began to urbanize and the bread took more time to get from bakery to grocer, the rye bread began to host a mold called "ergot.

Why Rye?

Witch ointment

Witch Ointment

  • In smalldoses, ergot is a powerful hallucinogenic drug which became quite popular among those who were inclined towards herbalism and folk cures. It's mentioned in Shakespeare's plays, and turns up in virtually every contemporary writing of the witchcraft age. In particular, it is the inevitable central ingredient in the ointment that witches rubbed their broomsticks with.

Why pick on ravens

Why pick on Ravens?

  • Myths and Superstitions could also be why we pick Corvids as mascots of Halloween.

  • In Germany it is told Ravens can find the souls of the dead and even contain the souls of the damned.

  • In Sweden the croaking sound of Ravens is thought to the voices of murdered people who were not properly buried.

  • The Tower of London has six Ravens because the legend says if anything should befall them, England will be invaded.

More about ravens what do they eat

More about Ravens + What do they eat?

  • A Crow or Raven on the roof foretells death or misfortune to the home’s inhabitants.  A raven on a church steeple is bad news for a whole community.   I have to comment here- We have quite a flock (murder) of crows we feed and entertain daily.   They rest on our roof day after day.  I like to think they give us good luck.

  • The Northwest coastal people have traditions that portray the Raven as both the creator spirit, trickster, hero or villain all at the same time.   He is a great shiftshaper and can assume any image to get what he wants.  He either is the creator of the world or plays a big part in its creation.  Their Crow stories explore themes of justice versus the Raven who has a greedy motivation.
