Halloween is a festival that takes place on the evening of October 31 every year. This year, Halloween 2023 is on Tuesday. It is a highly anticipated festival that brings excitement and a touch of spookiness to people all around the world.
Halloween is derived from an ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. The Samhain Festival is an activity at the end of the harvest season of the Gaelic civilization and is sometimes referred to as the Celtic New Year celebration. It is also believed that on October 31st the boundary between life and death disappeared, souls departed from hell, returned to their relatives for food and water during the holy night.
Halloween’s Eve, there is also a place for this day that souls will enter a living person to begin the life of a new year. However, the dead do not want to enter the dead soul, so on 31/10 villagers extinguish the fire in the house to make the house cold and boring. Then people use costumes to become ghosts to fool souls, so they think these people are like themselves and do not enter.
Today’s Halloween Festival is considered by many to be a fun day for young people. On Halloween day, people dress up as ghosts, hang out on the street or gather around fire, hang pumpkin lights, kids have game Trick or Treat …
One of the most iconic aspects of Halloween is the tradition of dressing up in costumes. People of all ages take joy in selecting their favorite characters, creatures, or even inanimate objects to portray. From witches and vampires to superheroes and princesses, the options are endless. Some individuals spend weeks or even months planning and creating their costumes, adding intricate details and accessories to truly bring their character to life. The streets come alive with a vibrant display of creativity and imagination as people parade in their costumes, sharing laughter and admiration.
Decorations play a significant role in setting the eerie ambiance of Halloween. Pumpkins carved into jack-o’-lanterns with spooky faces and flickering candles are a staple in many households. Haunted houses, with cobwebs, skeletons, and ghostly figures, become a popular attraction for thrill-seekers. Orange and black, the traditional colors of Halloween, dominate the scene, creating an atmosphere of mystery and excitement. The streets are adorned with decorations, and neighborhoods often hold competitions to see who can create the most elaborate and terrifying displays.
Trick-or-treating is a beloved Halloween tradition that brings joy to children and adults alike. Dressed in their costumes, children go from door to door, knocking and proclaiming the famous phrase “Trick or treat!” in search of candy and treats.
