Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain.  Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.

Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted house attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
