Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of Hallows' Even or Hallows' Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in several countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church. Some believe, however, that Halloween began solely as a Christian holiday, separate from ancient festivals like Samhain.
Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related guising and souling), attending Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, as well as watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows' Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular, although elsewhere it is a more commercial and secular celebration.Some Christians historically abstained from meat on All Hallows' Eve, a tradition reflected in the eating of certain vegetarian foods on this vigil day, including apples, potato pancakes, and soul cakes.
It is reported that Halloween is celebrated on October 31 each year. But the people involved in the petition want to change it to the last Saturday in October. The “Halloween and Clothing Association”, which opened the Halloween rescheduled event, called it “a safer, longer and pressureless celebration.”
According to the organization, there are about 3,800 Halloween-related injuries each year, and 70% of parents are unable to participate in Halloween tricks for sugar. It is not immediately clear whether the rescheduled Halloween time will help solve the problem. But the petition pointed out that the rescheduled period will have a full day to celebrate, not just a few hours in the evening.
According to reports, as of the morning of the 5th, there have been more than 137,000 signatures, very close to reaching 150,000 signature targets.
At the same time, the chocolate bar manufacturer “Snicker” said on social media, “If the federal authorities officially change the date, we will provide 1 million free Snickers chocolate bars. Participate in the petition!”
However, the report said that the Snickers’ chocolate bar was released, although some candy fans bought it, but many people did not agree with the brand manufacturer’s practice, saying that it was “trying to get sales through a holiday.” Some people said that Will resist Snickers and completely stop buying candy from this brand.
So we maybe we need some holiday decorations such as Halloween
