What Is Halloween All About?
Halloween is celebrated each year the night before All Saints on October 31st.
The tradition started with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people wore costumes to scare off ghosts and would light bonfires.
As Halloween evolved, by the 1920s and 1930s, Halloween turned to be a secular but more community-centered holiday.
It became a tradition to trick or treat, watch Halloween movies, go to Halloween parties, and visit haunted houses or Halloween parades.
And with all these new traditions and activities over time, it became an event to enjoy for the whole family.
Those and more facts about Halloween can be found here.
