HALLOWEEN!!!

Halloween history is one of mystery and intrigue, the story of Halloween’s past has been passed down through generations. Traditions and adaptations of ancient ceremonies and superstitions have evolved into the holiday we know and love today.

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows’ evening also known as Halloween or All Hallows’ Eve.

Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, visiting “haunted houses”.

Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them.

Trick-or-treating, is an activity for children on or around Halloween in which they proceed from house to house in costumes, asking for treats such as confectionery with the question, “Trick or treat?” The “trick” part of “trick or treat” is a threat to play a trick on the homeowner or his property if no treat is given. Trick-or-treating is one of the main traditions of Halloween. The history of Halloween has evolved. The activity is popular in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada. Part of the history of Halloween is Halloween costumes. The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays goes back to the Middle Ages, and includes Christmas wassailing.

  1. I think halloween is a funny holiday. Children and parents visit people and say “Joke or sweets!”! But my parents and grandparents don’t celebrate halloween. That day they go to graves and light candles.

    I like Halloween because it is fun night of scary things. But it is not that popular to celebrate it in Lithuania. But still it is fun to celebrate because you can wear scary costumes, to do ridiculous make up, to watch scary films, to go to neighbours and say: “trick or treat!” and to go to bed late at nght!
