Happy Halloween to everyone !!! This is a holiday which happens only once a year and we celebrate it on the eve of October 31.
Magical things suppose to happen on that night, strange creeky noises, cemeteries are full of ghosts and walking zombies,
you might even run into few Vampires or Werewolves (probably trick or treating).
The word Halloween derives from original word spelled "Hallowe'en" meaning a shorter version of Hallows Eve - the eve of All Saints
Day, which comes from celtic and galeic traditions of paying tribute to all who have passed and died.
The same day was and still is celebrated in pagan festivals as well as in Catholic religion. In celtic festivities you celebrate  the
end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half.
The celebration has some elements of a festival of the dead. The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the
Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family's ancestors were
honoured and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the
wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm. In Scotland the
spirits were impersonated by young men dressed in white with masked, veiled or blackened faces.
The colours black and orange have become associated with the celebrations, perhaps because of the darkness of night and the
colour of fire or of pumpkins, and maybe because of the vivid contrast this presents for merchandising. Another association is
with the jack-o'-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, ghost
tours, bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
