happy halloween

Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is an international holiday celebrated on the evening of October 31; today it is often celebrated in the morning and afternoon as well. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century.

Thank you Wikipedia, for more info on the origins of Halloween go here. As for me I am off to prepare for a traditional (in my family at least) chili and breadsticks party! Happy Halloween!
