Trick or Treat! The end of October is all about Halloween. Houses are decorated with spider webs and we see hollowed-out pumpkins with carved faces at the front door. Halloween is a traditional festival that is celebrated annually and is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. This tradition is passed over from Ireland, where the Celts celebrated New Year’s Eve thousands of years ago on October 31st and remembered the spirits of the deceased during this evening. The carved-out pumpkin with candles in it, symbolizes the wandering ghosts and is the most famous symbol of Halloween worldwide. Halloween was brought to the United States by Irish immigrants in the 1800s. Today it’s more of a creepy children’s party. During Halloween, when it gets dark, the kids dress up around the houses for a trick or treat.
