Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October.
According to scientists it originated from an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain. People believed that on that day the dead could visit the living, as their spirits return to earth.
Traditionally on Halloween Night people wear scary or funny costumes of witches, vampires, pirates, fairies and ghosts
The most popular children's amusement on Halloween is "trick-or-treating".
They visit houses in their neighbourhood knocking on every door yelling the phrase: "Trick or treat!" Usually people give them sweets, fruit and candies, but if they don't, the children can play a low-down trick on them.
Another famous All Saints’ Night tradition is making Jack O'Lantern: people carve a scary smiling face on a pumpkin and put a candle inside.
Traditional Halloween symbols are bats, black cats (and white ones in England), spiders, ghosts and images of Jack O'Lantern.
Halloween is celebrated in many countries all over the world. In some of them (China, Mexico, Austria) the dead are honored and welcomed: people leave food and gifts for the souls of their deceased loved ones and keep lights in their houses burning all night.
In other countries, like Germany, people are afraid of ghosts and spirits. They even hide knives and other sharp objects in order not to be hurt by these visitors on Halloween night.
