When is Halloween?

Halloween began as a Celtic tradition named Samhain. During this festival, it was believed that the border between the living and the dead disappeared, and the dead would cause harm through diseases and other means to both humans and crops. Bonfires, the burning of slaughtered livestock, and wearing masks were common rituals.

The term Halloween comes from an abbreviation of All Hallow's Eve, as it occurs the eve before All Hallows' Day (now named All Saints Day).

Today, common activities include costume parties, trick-or-treating, apple-bobbing, and visiting haunted attractions.
