Halloween is the night of the 31st October when people dress up in costumes as ghosts, witches, skeletons and devils, and try to frighten each other.

According to tradition, Halloween is the night of the year when it was believed that ghosts and witches are very active and they return to the earthly world. People would dress up as ghosts and witches to look just like one of these spirits so they would not be recognized or harmed by them.

On Halloween, people decorate their houses with jack-o’-lanterns. A jack-o’-lantern is a lantern made from a hollowed-out pumpkin with holes carved into it to look like a human face. People put a lit candle inside the pumpkin; as in the photo above.

Some children go trick-or-treating on Halloween. They dress up in costumes and go from house to house asking for treats such as sweets or candy. If a treat isn’t given the children might play a trick on the homeowner or their house.
