English Power Halloween reading About Halloween Halloween is traditional celebration held on October 31st. Children love to dress up in halloween costumes and go from doortodoor in their neighborhood following the old tradition of trickortreating, collecting sweets and gifts, sometimes money. Halloween began as an ancient Celtic festival in Great Britain and Ireland, and has survived most strongly among Irish, Scottish and Welsh communities. Immigrants from these communities carried the tradition to North America where it has gained in popularity. In turn, as part of American pop culture, Halloween has spread in popularity to most corners of the English speaking western world, and increasingly into Western Europe in recent times. Originally Halloween was pagan festival, around the idea of linking the living with the dead, when contact became possible between the spirits and the physical world, and magical things were more likely to happen. Like most pagan festivals, long ago it was absorbed into the festivals of the expanding Christian church, and became associated with All Hallows Day, or All Saints Day, which eventually fell on November 1 under the Gregorian calendar. vigil for the festival was held on All Hallows Evening on October 31. Over years, All Hallows Evening became Halloween and later the Halloween we know today. The celebration of Halloween survived most strongly in Ireland. It was an end of summer festival, and was often celebrated in each community with bonfire to ward off the evil spirits. Children would go from door to door in disguise as creatures from the underworld to collect treats, mainly fruit, nuts and the like for the festivities. Carving turnips as ghoulish faces to hold candles became popular part of the festival, which has been adapted to carving pumpkins in America. to dress up – verkleiden neighbourhood Nachbarschaft ancient – altertümlich, ehemalig survived – überlebt immigrants – Einwanderer gained in popularity – an Popularität gewonnen increasingly – zunehmend recent times – seit kurzem pagan – heidnisch expanding – ausbreitend all hallows day – Tag aller Heiligen vigil – eine Nachtwache bonfire – ein (Freuden-) Feuer to ward off abschrecken in disguise as – hier: verkleidet als carving turnips – Räben schnitzen
