Halloween as it’s known in the UK is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31st October, it’s the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.
It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year otherwise known as the church or Christian year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed. Halloween is celebrated by taking part in activities such as trick-or-treating, wearing Halloween costume, carving pumpkins lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, playing pranks, telling scary stories and watching horror films.
