HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT
Added on: 31st Oct 2014
Halloween or Hallowe'en; a contraction of "All Hallows' Evening"),
also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve,
is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October,
the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.
It initiates the time of the year dedicated to remembering the dead,
including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.
Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows' Eve revolves
around the theme of using "humour and ridicule to confront the power of death.".
