Halloween

 

MDC extends a Happy Halloween to everyone !!!

Halloween or Hallowe’en (a contraction of its original title “All Hallows‘ Evening“), also known as All Hallows’ Eve, is a yearly holiday observed around the world on October 31, the eve of the WesternChristian feast of All Hallows. Most scholars believe that All Hallows’ Eve was originally influenced by western European harvest festivals and festivals of the dead with pagan roots, particularly the CelticSamhain.  Others maintain that it originated independently of Samhain.

Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as “guising“), attending costumeparties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfiresapple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
