Halloween (also spelled Hallowe’en) is a holiday celebrated on October 31.   It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints’ Day. It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones.

All Saints’ Day (also called All Hallows or Hallowmas), often shortened to All Saints,is a feast celebrated on November 1 in Western Christianity, and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in Eastern Christianity in honour of all the saints, known and unknown. In terms of Western Christian theology, the feast commemorates all those who have  attained the beatific vision in heaven. Specifically, in the Roman Catholic Church,
the next day, All Souls’ Day, commemorates the departed faithful who haven’t yet  been purified and reached heaven.

Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America during Ireland’s  Great Famine of 1846. The day is often associated with the colours orange and black,  and is strongly associated with symbols such as the jack-o’-lantern. Halloween  activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes, ghost tours, bonfires, costume  parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o’-lanterns, pranking people,
reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. For
