    I was expecting to find more to your question. That said, Hallowe'en is about different things to different cultures. Here in Australia, it has long been frowned upon as something "American." In recent years it has gained quite a following, with trick or treating becoming more and more popular amongst children.
    In reality, it marks All Hallows' Eve, and is said to be the one night of the year that the spirit world and the living collide. Despite it being associated with the US, All Hallow's Eve comes from Europe.
    Watch out for the Great Pumpkin!

    Halloween is on October 31 in the United States.   People celebrate by wearing costumes-the scarier the better.  In New York City where I live, a section called Greenwich Village has an annual Halloween Parade.   In my building complex, there is usually a party given for children in which candy and treats are given. 

    As for me,  I celebrate by looking at horror themed movies.  I anticipate Halloween because that it is the time where I can have a marathon of horror movie watching.  Also, during that time, the days get....shorter while the nights get.......L-O-N-G-E-R!  My favorite movie to watch on Halloween is Bram Stoker's Dracula.
