American Halloween is a time of autumn festivities and superstition. Children especially love to dress in costumes and go trick-or-treating for candy. It likely originated from a Celtic festival of bonfires and scary costumes to ward off evil spirits.

America has influenced the world and Halloween is celebrated in many other countries.  The British and the many places they have influenced historically  practice some aspects.  Much of Europe and parts of Asia recognize a version of Halloween. In some form, it exists around the world.  However, most Catholic countries continue to observe it more as a time to honor loved ones who have passed on.

Parties and trick-or-treating provide more opportunities to reach out to those  in your world!
