Halloween Fun

Halloween is a holiday celebrated in the U.S., Canada and the British Isles on October 31st where people dress in costumes and children go door to door asking for candy. An example of Halloween is when children dress as ghosts and witches and go to neighbor’s doors saying “Trick or treat!” (Dictionary definition)

Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o’-lanterns.

Looking for Free Images to use in your Project?

It’s not OK to say “I found it on Google” when using images in your projects and everyday work.

Why?

It’s tempting to pick an image from Google but those images aren’t for the taking. Those images are just being displayed on Google. ‘Google’ does not own them. They belong to other people and using one without the owner’s permission is breaking Copyright law.

Note:  If you are searching Google for images, be sure to select only images that are labelled ‘FOR RE-USE’  (Images/Tools/Labelled for reuse)

Here are a few of my favourite sites for finding free to use pictures for your work.
