Halloween in the past, Halloween today
The Halloween party originated in the British Isles celebrated on the evening of October 31. Its name comes from the English All Hallows Eve, translated into French the vigil of All Saints. It is a feast of pagan origin. Many people consider it to be from the United States, but in reality it was after the mass emigration of Irish and Scots to North America in the 1920s that it appeared there..
Nowadays, the holiday of Halloween is mainly celebrated in Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, United States, France and New Zealand. According to contemporary traditions, children (young and old) dress up in scary costumes: costumes of zombies, ghosts, witches, vampires and any other monster. Then they will ring the doorbell asking for candy, saying “Stuff or candy”.
