Halloween is a holiday celebrated on Oct 31st. By tradition, Halloween begins after sunset.
Long long ago, people believed that witches gathered together and ghosts roamed the world on Halloween. Today, most people no longer believe in ghosts and witches. But these supernatural beings are still a part of Halloween.
The colors black and orange are also a part of Halloween. Black is a symbol for night and orange is the color of pumpkins. A lantern is a hollowed-out pumpkin with a face carved on one side. Candles are usually placed inside, giving the face a spooky glow.
Dressing up in costumes is one of the most popular Halloween customs, especially among children. According to tradition, people would dress up in costumes or wear special clothing, masks or disguises, to frighten the spirits away. Popular Halloween costumes include vampires (creatures that drink blood), ghosts (spirits of the dead) and were wolves (people that turn into wolves when the moon is full).
Trick or treating is a modern Halloween custom where children go from house to house dressed in costume, asking for treats like candy or toys. If they don’t get any treats, they might play a trick (mischief or prank) on the owners of the house. The tradition of the Jack o’Lantern comes from a folktable about a man named Jack who tricked the devil and had to wander the earth with a lantern.
Halloween is also associated with supernatural creatures like ghosts and vampires. These creatures are not part of the natural world. They don’t really exist…or do they?
