Halloween


Halloween is on October 31. November 1st is the day of all saints (hallows).
So, the name Halloween means "the eve of all hallows", that is, the day before (the eve of) all saints' day.
In the US and in other countries where people follow this tradition,  they decorate their front porches with Jack O'Lanterns and other symbols common to this popular holiday.
For the decorations, the most common colors are black and orange. It's easy to do decorations using templates.
Kids dress in costumes and go trick-or-treating: they ring door bells and ask for candy (the treats) and, if they don't get it, they play tricks on the householders.
