Halloween originated as an ancient Celtic Festival.  During the festival people would light bonfires and wear costumes to protect themselves from evil spirits.

It is celebrated on 31 October, but was celebrated on 1 November during the 8th Century and called All Saints Day. The night before All Saints Day was known as All Hallows Eve and is recognized as Halloween today. 

Here is a list of Halloween vocabulary words and phrases that you can use to talk about this holiday with your friends.
