Halloween



Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31, primarily in Ireland, Scotland, Canada and the United States. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration.

Common Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, ghost tours, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, committing pranks, telling ghost stories or other frightening tales, and watching horror films.

It's maybe because we don't celebrate Halloween in Costa Rica but I don't really understand the meaning of this Holiday. I think is not the same as celebrate the All Saints' Day where we honor our loved ones who died.

Anyway I like the costume parties and dressing up like a clown and despite is a comercila holiday, is a funny holiday!!!

  1. Hi Jean Carlo,

    Nice information. And you're right, it's really different from All Saints' Day, except for being close on the calendar...

    Have a good weekend!
