Halloween is originally celebrated on the eve of a western Christian feast of the All Saints Day (or All Hallows Day), and is dedicated to remembering the dead. Nowadays, Halloween is celebrated by attending costume parties, Trick-or-Treat, lighting bonfires, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns and so on.
