means?

Halloween, or Halloween... is a holiday that's celebrated annually on the night of October 31 in


different countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, the United States, Canada, New
Zealand, Australia and other parts of the world.
The word Halloween comes from the name of a holiday held in 800 AD called All Hallows
Eve, the day and evening before All Saints Day, celebrated on November 1st ;
In ancient times, October 31st was the eve of the Celtic New Year. On this day, the Celts held the
festival of Samhain in honour of the Celtic lord of the dead;
The celebration of Samhain also marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the
cold, dark time of year.

On October 31st , dozens of children dressed in costumes go from door to door asking for treats,
or else a trick would be played on them;
As they give each child a treat, the owners of the house exclaim over the costumes and try to
guess who is under the masks.
On Halloween, when it was believed that Ghosts came back to Earth, people would wear masks
to avoid being recognised by them;
Halloween costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as ghosts, skeletons, witches and
devils. Costumes are also based on themes other than traditional horror, such as those of
characters from television shows, films, and other pop culture icons.
