Halloween is celebrated on October 31st . It is the night in which demons, sorcerers and witches appear. Children dress up in fearsome costumes and go "trick-or-treating" from house to house for candy. The genesis of Halloween goes back to the Celtic new year's festival, which was celebrated on November 1st. The custom told, that during the night before the doors of the netherworld opened and the ghosts of the deceased entered the human world. In the 9th century the Christian Church changed this gentile celebration to the All Saint's Day. The old custom however remained and became the Halloween festival. This is, why on this day children dress up as ghosts and walk through the streets to frighten the adults.
The symbol for Halloween is the jack-o-lantern, which is a pumpkin carved into a scary looking face with a lit candle inside. These can be found adorning many porches and walkways. The colors for Halloween are black and orange.
