A day that many of us dedicate to everything horror. Horror movies, horror stories, dressing up in scary costumes...
For people who are horror buffs, like me, they watch horror movie marathons.
But how did Halloween come about?
There are many stories about the origin. Mainly, Halloween was actually a festival dedicated to pay respects to the dead. Till today, some cultures don't celebrate it the way the movies show- no costume parties and not even trick-or-treating.
It's about lighting candles and preparing food for the deceased. There are some cultures that distribute sweets and that is to appease the spirits.
Halloween today is celebrated by mostly kids dressing up in costumes, going to their neighbors for candy and sitting around a bonfire, telling horror stories.
The bonfires are thought to keep evil spirits away.
