Scariest Halloween Decorations deedsphotos
Halloween, also known as All Hallow's Eve, is celebrated in the United States and in many countries in Europe on October 31, the day before All Hallows' Day which initiates the time dedicated to remembering the dead including saints (hallows) martyrs and faithful departed Christian believers. The holiday is believed to have originated from pagan Celtic harvest festivals. Today, in the United States, at any rate, Halloween has pretty much lost it's religious connotation and become a commercial event. It's celebrated primarily by children who carve pumpkins, dress up in costumes and go from house to house begging for treats i.e., "trick or treating."
