Halloween also known as All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It is the time dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints ,martyrs and allthe faithful departed believers.
According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianised feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals with possible pagan roots.Other academics maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.
Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
( Apple bobbing is a game often played at Halloween The game is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than
water, they will float at the surface. Players then try to catch one with their teeth. Use of arms is not allowed, and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating)
