Halloween: A Fairy-Enchanted Holiday

Halloween’s original name is All Hallows’Eve, meaning the night before All Saints’ Day. Halloween is usually referred to be a masquerade celebration, and it is a holiday that a lot of teens look forward to and participate in every October.

A Bootiful Night

Today’s Halloween festival originates from the Celtic people, an ethnic group who lived more than 2,000 years ago in the regions that are now England, Ireland, and Northern France.

The early immigrants, the majority of whom came from England and others from Celtic countries, created many distinct customs in America, including Halloween.

Every year on October 31, the Halloween costume festival occurs, and it is an essential component of the event.

Although this day is not a traditional holiday in Vietnam, it has grown in popularity in recent years as a result of the impact of Western entertainment and society. More and more families are allowing their children to enjoy and go out over these holidays.

Costumes, Pumpkins, & Candy, Oh My

Every year on Halloween, people dress up in bizarre costumes and makeup to mimic mythical characters, fairy tales, elves, or movie characters. The purpose of dressing up is to create an odd, terrifying, mysterious, and exciting atmosphere that merges in with the holiday’s joyful surroundings.

On this festival, you are likely to encounter strange pumpkin lanterns. This is the main Halloween symbol, and it is related to old folklore.

People carve pumpkins into various face forms and ignite candles inside to illuminate the interior of the pumpkin. These pumpkins are displayed indoors, in front of the house, or in the yard.

Children knock on neighbors’ homes and ask for candy while holding pumpkin cages that have been carved inside. This is a Halloween custom called Trick-or-treat.

For Westerners, they believe that pumpkins represent prosperity and success. They light candles and display them with the hope of bringing luck and happiness to the whole family.

Halloween Activities Out on the Town & at Home

In many nations, Halloween has become an annual entertaining holiday for both children and adults.
