Towards the cold nights, those who hold back from lighting up that fire place - in todays society flicking on the central heating - a group of frighteners will knock on peoples doors. Come from the energy supply, back then was the woodsman who chopped the wooden logs for everyone, to scare people into making use of that paid service.
Jack, the woodsman, spent all his hard working weeks chopping down trees for people to burn on their fires. Only some like to hold on till the very last moment, when matters are important enough to waste more than they can use. Only Jack knows that people like this prevents him earning that extra more for this time of year. So on the night for Halloween, using their given jack-o-lanterns, sends out a group of scarey looking scoundrals to put the frighteners on the village folk to burn. It still happens today in some cases, with todays way for doing things, the dark nights are even more so terrorising.

This was once a pagan festival. Now it is an excuse for kids to come round in silly 'horror' costumes demanding money or sweets, sometimes throwing eggs at your house if you don't give them anything. Was also used as the title and setting for a series of films.
A couple of ghosties started fighting on halloween. They were pulled off by the ghoulies.

A bastardised Christian version of the original Irish Pagan/Celtic harvest festival, All Hallows Eve. A celebration where it was believed that supernatural forces were at their strongest so people would dress up in ghoulish costumes and parade around to scare off the the spirits of the dead.
I dress up for halloween but I have nfi why.
