Halloween is celebrated on 31st October. Halloween activities are Trick-or-Treat, Halloween costume parties, games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films. Halloween costumes are modelled after supernatural figures. Some supernatural figures are vampires, skeletons, ghosts, monsters and witches.
Halloween is usually celebrated with family and friends. Parties and other events may be planned on 31st October or in the weekends before and after this date. Adults may celebrate by watching horror films, holding costume parties or creating haunted houses. Many children dress up in costumes and visit other homes in the neighbourhood. At each house, they ask for sweets, snacks or small gifts. If they don’t get this, they threaten to do some harm to the owners of the house. This is known as playing “Trick-or-Treat”.
The Covid-19 pandemic is putting a damper on traditional Trick-or-Treat this year, a disappointment for kids and candy lovers alike. For candy companies, Halloween is the biggest season for sales and the pandemic stopped this.
