HalloweenIn October  many shop windows in Britain turn orange and black, with pumpkins, witches, broomsticks and cats.

Flying witches, pumpkin lanterns, trick or treat… What do you know about Halloween?

Halloween is celebrated on 31st October. This isn’t a public holiday in Britain.

Halloween is the night before the Catholic festival of All Saints and the pagan Celtic festival of Samhain (1st November).

Halloween is also sometimes called All Hallows’ Eve, All Hallowtide and can also be written Hallowe’en.

Halloween colours are orange and black. Orange is related to harvests because the end of October is the end of the harvest (the time when fruit and vegetables are collected). Black is related to death.

In the UK Halloween traditions are very much alive and popular, especially amongst kids and teenagers. We looked at some of the most common.
