  • A minor point but Halloween is not an American festival. It's origins are thought to be Celtic and Pagan and therefore from these regions of Ireland, the UK and northern Spain. All Hallows Eve was when people were said to have dressed as the dead to protect themselves from the evil spirits that were said to return to earth on the 31st. The pumpkin and trick and treating are American but the origins go alot further back than the USA.
