Both the USA and Canada celebrate Halloween on 31st October. Some parts of Europe organize parties, too! It comes from a Celtic festival, the “Samhain”. Halloween originates from the phrase “Al-hallow-even” that means the eve of the All Saints Day.
In Ireland, they carve radishes, potatoes and pumpkins, put a candle inside and place them near windows, to keep evil spirits away.
In the USA, the children wear costumes and go from house to house asking: “Trick or Treat?”. Most people give them sweets, chocolates and lollipops.
The scythe, the pumpkin called Jack-o-Lantern and the lantern symbolize Halloween.
