Halloween is a worldwide celebration everyone enjoys. From carving a pumpkin to setting up decorations, preparing the treats, finding the right costume and finally going out for trick-or-treating, this day is a happy day for children and adults alike. In Canada, just like many other countries, children dress up in the disguise of their choice then scour the town performing tricks or receiving tricks. Then come home with loads of candy and chocolates.


The Story of Halloween

The tradition of Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain taking place on October 31st. In Scotland and Ireland, they believe that on Samhain, the veil between the living and the dead falls. Consequently, ghosts are free to roam and visit the living. So this is why people light bonfires and wear costumes to scare off these ghosts.
