It’s that spooky time of year again and we are offering a free Halloween printable.
Halloween is often associated with mummies, but mummies actually have roots in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that the soul was connected to the body. Preserving the body after death ensured an afterlife. The ancient Egyptians wrapped cloth soaked in resin around the corpse to help safeguard it. Many mummies are still intact today. Some museums have an Egyptian section and you can view whole mummies in the display.
Hollywood movies are said to be the source of fear people have of mummies. The movie makers portrayed mummies as very scary in films. Mummies would rise from the dead and bring harm to humans. Because of that,eventually the scrary portrayal of the walking dead became associated with the Halloween celebration.
