Halloween Holiday Canada

Information About Halloween Holiday:
Halloween Holiday celebrated on Oct. 31 is the evening of All Saints' Day , observed with traditional games and customs enjoyed by children all arround the world. The word Halloween comes from medieval England's All Hallows' eve. Today customes are based on many non Christian hero's and popular children stars like Harry Potter, Superman, Batman, Yu-Gi-Oh and others, but Harry Potter is probably the most popular in last few years.

Witches and other evil spirits were believed to roam the earth on Halloween evening, playing tricks on human beings especially on kids. Bonfires were lit, offerings were made of dainty foods and sweets, and people would disguise themselves as one of the roaming spirits, to avoid demonic persecution. Survivals of these early practices can be found in countries of Celtic influence today, such as the United States where children go from door to door in costumes demanding trick or treat to receive candies and money lately, and because of that Halloween has after Christmas Holiday become children's favorite holiday.
