Halloween is a traditional event dedicated to remembering the dead; nowadays it is celebrated mostly in English-speaking countries. It includes costumes, visiting houses in the neighbourhood and of course trick-or-treating. There are many symbols of Halloween including carved pumpkins, ghosts, zombies and other wicked creatures that fill the streets on October 31st. It originated in Ireland, and symbolized confronting the power of death through humour and ridicule.
