Mtn. Talk Monday: Trick or Treat

Mtn. Talk Monday: Trick or Treat

In this special edition of Mountain Talk Monday, host Kelli Haywood takes you on an exploration of an Appalachian Halloween!  The episode begins with a general history of the holiday tracing it back to the Celtic New Year – Samhain, which was later transformed by the Catholic church into All Hallow’s Eve or Halloween.  From there, you will hear tales of ghosts and mischief pulled from the WMMT archives and told by our staff and volunteer DJs.  Add in a few good old-time murder and death ballads, and you got yourself one scary good time.  Listen and share this episode with your friends!  Happy Halloween!!!
