What is Halloween?
Halloween is celebrated on the evening of the 31st of October, one day before the Christian feast called All Saint’s day. All saints day is a day dedicated to the mourning of the death of the saints and the recently departed souls who haven’t yet reached heaven. All Saints day is also called All Hallows day, hence the evening before is call All Hallow eve, which later on was called Halloween.
Now over the years Halloween is a special occasion where young children go out into the neighborhood “trick or treating”. They ask for candy or money as a treat, or they perform a trick. This dates back to medieval times when people paraded the streets before the ”All Feasts day” and asked for food.
