Halloween is a favorite holiday for many people. It is celebrated around the world. In the United States, it is celebrated with pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, costumes, candy, parties, and decorations. In my neighborhood, we have over seven hundred trick-or-treaters. That’s a lot of candy! My neighbor said she spent over $300 on candy. I’m sorry to say but I have not passed out candy for many years. The last year we passed out candy, my younger son’s girlfriend, in her darling winged costume, sat on the front porch the entire evening passing out candy. Our cul-de-sac looked like a crowed mall. Why so many people? Two doors down, our neighbor goes all out with billowing smoke and animated creatures that will jump out at you. For the past few years, our house has been dark on Halloween night. For one reason, my son no longer has the girlfriend who will sit on the porch all evening until 9:00 passing out candy.
Many children, instead of trick-or-treating in neighborhoods, go to the mall, Disneyland or church on Halloween night to trick-or-treat or to enjoy other types of fun activities.
Halloween is celebrated around the world. Each country has different activities for the holiday.
