What is Halloween?
Halloween is a holiday that is celebrated on the night of October 31st. It is thought to have originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain, which was a celebration of the end of the harvest season. Halloween has since evolved into a secular holiday that is celebrated by people of all ages. On Halloween night, children dress up in costumes and go door-to-door Trick-or-Treating for candy. Adults often host Halloween parties where they serve spooky food and drink, play games, and tell scary stories.
Celebrating and History of the Holiday
Halloween is a holiday that has been celebrated for centuries. It is a time when people dress up in costumes, go out trick-or-treating, and have parties. Halloween is also a time for people to decorate their homes with spooky decorations.
The history of Halloween goes back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. The Celts believed that on October 31st, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead were blurred. They would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off evil spirits.
Over time, Halloween has evolved into the holiday we know today. In America, Halloween is now the second most popular holiday after Christmas. Every year, millions of people enjoy celebrating Halloween with friends and family.
