Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31st, primarily in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and some Western countries.
It has its roots in ancient Celtic and European traditions, particularly the Celtic festival of Samhain, marking the end of the harvest season. Halloween is known for its customs, including costume parties, trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and spooky decorations. People of all ages dress up in costumes, carve pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, and enjoy sweet treats. Trick-or-treating involves children going door-to-door for candy. Halloween also features costume parties, horror movies, and the sharing of scary stories.
In some Latin American countries, the Day of the Dead is celebrated around the same time as Halloween, dedicated to honoring deceased loved ones.
