What is Halloween?
Halloween is a celebration on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Saint’s Day.
Celebrated in Ireland and Scotland for centuries, the immigrants took many Halloween customs to North America in the 19th century.
Popular Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, and lighting bonfires.
One theory says that Halloween traditions were influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, which are believed to have pagan roots.
Also, Halloween is thought to have influences from Christian beliefs and practices. The word Halloween comes from “All Hallow’s Eve”. This is the evening before the Christian holiday of All Saints’Day on 1 November. (source – Wikipedia)
