Information on poster:
Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve, is celebrated each year on October 31st. It is the eve of Hallowmas, which is a pagan tradition dedicated to remembering the dead, and also coincides with the end of the harvest season.
Today, Halloween is a popular celebration in America, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. People celebrate by dressing up in costume, typically those representing supernatural beings, however modern celebrations involve many different types of costumes. Children will visit houses in their neighbourhood asking “Trick or treat?”, where they receive sweeties or chocolate or have a trick performed for them.
Pumpkin carving is also a popular tradition during Halloween. Jack-o’-lanterns are thought to frighten evil spirits. Halloween is represented by black, orange and occasionally purple.
