Happy Halloween!

Halloween - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday observed on October 31, which commonly includes activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. The ancient festival originated in Ireland and Scotland as the pagan Celtic harvest festival, Samhain.[1] Irish and Scottish immigrants brought older versions of the tradition to North America and elsewhere in the 19th century, making it popular worldwide today.
