Halloween comes from the Celts of Ireland. For the November 1st was the first day of winter and their new year. On this day they wore scary masks and costumes and didn’t eat much. They stayed at home without lights and warmth in order to drive away from the spirits of the dead who wandered the paths on that day.
Today Halloween (All Hallow’s Eve – All Saint’s Day) is celebrated in the USA, Canada and Great Britain. On this day people have parties and dress up as witches, vampires, ghosts and also heroes. They dance to scary music and play games like ”bobbing for apples” and tell ghost stories. Also they go from house to house asking ”Trick or Treat?” and have lots of fun!
