There are moments in life when one sheds all the inhibitions to reveal the jovial self. Man is but a child. Being one, in a sweet departure from the monotonous ways of life, gives a new zest to life. Halloween is one such occasion. Halloween is an annual festival whose history can be traced back to thousands of years. Halloween has been influenced by various cultures, such as Roman's Pomona Day, to the Christian holidays of All Saints and All Souls Days to the Celtic festival of Samhain.
The Halloween celebrated today includes flavors from all these influences such as Festival of Samhain's black cats, magic, evil spirits and death, the apples, nuts and harvest from Pomona Day's, and the ghosts, skeletons and skulls from All Saint's Day and All Soul's Day.
Trick ‘O’ Treating, which is synonymous with Halloween is an event in which kids dress up as their favorite character and go around the neighborhood asking for candies. The history of "Trick 'O' Treating" can be traced back to the early celebrations of All Soul's Day in Britain. At that time, the poor would go around begging, and the housewives would give them special treats. These treats were referred to as "soulcakes", and the event was known as "going a-souling". The "soulers" on the other hand, would promise to say a prayer for the dead. Over time, this custom died down and nowadays the modern trend sees children go around asking for candies. It is a much awaited event and kids look forward to this event with eager anticipation. Come Halloween and one can see the stores overflowing with costumes of various kinds. It is one of the festivals that allow one to be creative. Besides kids, Halloween also provides an opportunity for adults to simply let go off themselves and dress up as their favorite character as they accompany their kids Trick ‘O’ Treating.
