Haloween: Scary but fun!

Back in the Halloween history, Saints and priests believed that on the night of the last Sunday of Summer, that is, October 31, the two worlds of spirits and humans collide and we honored and invited spirits of our foregone relatives and family members to have a meal beside us. Trick-or-treat, carving Jack-o-lanterns and preparing sweet candies are a few major rituals nowadays.
