Halloween is celebrated on October the 31st every year. It originated from a pagan holiday and the Christian holiday of All Saints' Day. The name Halloween is a shortened version of All Hallows' Eve. Today, it is more of a fun day for children and has largely lost its religious roots. Halloween is not celebrated in many countries around the world although many people know about it.

Halloween has many easily identifiable symbols. The colours orange and black are widely used. In particular, orange pumpkins and fires and black witches, cats and costumes are common features of this day. One of the biggest Halloween activities is trick-or-treating. This is when children knock on doors and ask for a small gift. If they don't get anything, they'll play a trick on the person who opens the door. Food also plays a big part of Halloween. Toffee apples are very popular and so is anything made from pumpkin.
