HALLOWEEN
October ends with the celebration of Halloween in much of the world. The name comes from the fact that it falls on the eve, or day before, the Christian holiday of All Saints’ Day. Therefore it is usually simply seen as a time to carve pumpkins, dress up in scary or funny costumes, and go trick-or-treating.
