Halloween Trivia

- When do people celebrate Halloween?
These are my English classmates. Our teacher Diva prepared a surprise
for us: a Halloween day! Perfect!
People celebrate Halloween on October, 31st.
- What does Halloween mean?
The name is actually a shortened version of "All Hallows' Even," the eve of All Hallows' Day. "Hallow" is an Old English word for "holy person," and All Hallows' Day is simply another name for All Saints' Day, the day Catholics commemorate all the saints. At some point, people began referring to All Hallows' Even as "Hallowe'en" and then simply "Halloween."

- How do people celebrate?
Trick-or-treating is a customary celebration for children on Halloween. Children go in costume from house to house, asking for treats such as candy or sometimes money, with the question, "Trick or treat?" The word "trick" refers to "threat" to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given. Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. Over time, in the United States the costume selection extended to include popular characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas and princesses.

- Why do people celebrate Halloween?
Because it is culture. The Halloween we celebrate today is a mixture of many different ancient religious beliefs, along with ancient traditions and folk traditions. These beliefs came from a number of different sources including: the Celtic, the Catholic Romans, and the Europeans. Their beliefs were just mixes all together to become the modern day version of the Halloween we know.

Una bonita pequeña fiesta en clase. En España se celebra una fiesta en los colegios bilingües español- inglés, y se disfrazan los alumnos! Saludos!
