....trick or treat......
Halloween is annually celebrated on 31 October. That's the night before All Saints' Day. From one year to another it becomes more and more popular. Nothing unusual, it is one of the best American traditions, the time of pumpkins, candies, witches, ghosts, costumes and much more.
This festival is a really old tradition. It dates back to the times when the Celts started to celebrate Halloween. They believed that the Gods take the life-giving sun in the time when the fall begins. For this reason, they used to dress up in animal-like costumes and make bonfires. Now, we have different habits. People decorate their houses with lanterns made of carved pumpkin, spider webs, skeletons and other items connected to death. Everyone, especially children, love to dress up in costumes and visit their neighbours saying "Trick or treat!". But the most famous are the Halloween events. People tell each other scary stories, watch horror movies and visit creepy places. They also make food connected with the holiday. Everybody enjoys everything that is scary, but this holiday is not as bad as it seems to be. There is so much fun! We finally have a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with family or friends.
