H for Halloween #AtoZChallenge

I don't know much about Halloween festival until i visited US. But, the funny and mystic decorations outside homes, trick or treats and Zombie walks intrigue me.

Halloween which is also known as 'All Hallows' eve' is celebrated annually on Oct 31st in many countries. This day is to remember dead people including saints (hallows) and martyrs. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating , attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted house attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. 



Trick or treat is customary practice done by children. Children wearing Halloween costumes go to every house and ask a question 'Trick or treat?'. The Trick is a threat to do some mischievous thing on the property of house owner. If they choose treat, the owner had to offer some candy to the children. 


Sharing a few photos on Halloween decorations i observed when I was in US.

Hope you like these!


Until next time,
