Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is also called All Hallows’ Eve or All Saints’ Eve.
The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even ("evening"), that is, the night before All Hallows Day. Up through the early 20th century, the spelling "Hallowe'en" was frequently used, eliding the "v" and shortening the word.
The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts wondered the streets on all Hallows Eve so they began wearing masks and costumes in order to not be recognized as human.
Orange and black are Halloween colors because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death.
Common Halloween activities include Costume parties, trick-or-treating in costumes, carving pumpkins, ghost tours, haunted attractions, bonfires, divination, apple bobbing.
