Hey guys, There's a Halloween VHS I remember watching when I was a kid (this would have been in the late ninties early 2000s, I'm guessing the video is from the late ninties), but I can't figure out the name of it. The VHS was short and was aimed at kids. It was somewhat educational, with a black man teaching the viewer about Halloween and where its traditions got started. I specifically remember a Dia de los muertos segment, where he explained its significance in Mexican culture. In particular, there was a rather creepy (at least, for six year old me) segment where the man is in a dark room and he starts reciting this poem about how a spider is crawling up his body. The segment ends on a somewhat ambiguous note, with the guy freaking out at the end because the spider is on his neck (I can't remember whether or not there's an actual spider, or if he's just playacting because he's reciting a poem). Anyways, I know the VHS was part of a series, all hosted by that same guy where he would explore a different holiday in every video. I only watched the Halloween one (because that was my favorite holiday growing up), and I used to get it all the time from the library, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was called to see if I can find it. Would anyone here happen to remember what it was? Thanks

Ok wow, I remember this! I think I used to watch this as a kid, and these other videos, like suddenly this image of a Christmas video came rushing back. Did this come with some kind of specific...toy or something, like a kind of set of stickers and this hollow orange plastic jack-o-lantern with a black handle?
