Many people celebrate halloween all over the world. But do you know its history? Let's read the text below and learn more about it.            

                  History of Halloween

   Halloween is a date celebrated on the night of October 31st. Its celebration is most practised in the United States and Canada. Children wear costumes and they go to peoples' homes saying "Trick or treat!" to ask for candy, sweets in the United Kingdom, or lollies in Australia, and then people give it to them. This practice originally involved a threat. A threat is when someone says that they will do something bad if they do not get what they want. In this case the threat could be explained as: "Give me a treat or I will play a trick on you." Children today usually do not play tricks if they do not get treats. However, some children still get up to mischief (pranks or things to make fun of people; like putting toilet paper in trees; writing on windows with soap or throwing eggs at peoples' houses). People sometimes dress up as ghosts, witches, goblins and other scary things for Halloween.

Here at Motivo we celebrated halloween having lots of fun! What about you?
