All Hallows Eve, or Halloween, is a holiday that many people around the world celebrate. Many people of different ages, ethnicities, and nationalities all celebrate this popular holiday.
Halloween “originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward of ghosts” (History.com).
Halloween is full of many fun activities such as carving pumpkins and turning them into jack-o-lanterns.
Houses are decorated with cobwebs, fake skeleton bones, gravestones. Some neighborhoods even have halloween decoration contests.
Children and teens dress up as many different things and walk around their neighborhoods. They walk up to the doors and say trick-or-treat, which leads them to get candy.
Halloween is a great holiday to watch scary movies with your friends and family, such as Hocus Pocus and Poltergeist.
October 31 is a day where everyone alike can eat candy and dress up like anything they can imagine.
