Halloween is celebrated on October 31 each year. The holiday originated as the evening before All Hallow’s Day, but likely has roots that go much further back.

The Halloween practice of children dressing in costume to go trick or treating came from a tradition in Ireland and England. People would dress up on All Hallow’s Eve to avoid being recognized by ghosts. They would also leave a bowl of food outside to appease the spirits. 

A carved pumpkin, also called a Jack O’Lantern, is another popular Halloween tradition. 

Other popular Halloween traditions include bobbing for apples, playing pranks on people, decorating in black and orange, and eating candy apples.
