Happy Halloween!!

Today is Halloween. Before Halloween was created as the spooky October holiday, Ireland celebrated Samhain. According to Irish mythology, Samhain (like Bealtaine) was a time, when the ‘doorways’ to the other world opened, allowing supernatural beings and the souls of the dead to come into our world, but while Bealtaine was a summer festival for the living, Samhain was essentially a festival for the dead.

Trick-or-treating is a recent Halloween custom for children and adults in many countries. Children in costumes go usually with their torch from house to house, asking for treats with the sentence “Trick or treat’. ‘Treat’ means some sweets e.g. chocolate, although in some cultures money is used instead of goodies.
