Pagen holiday for celebration of nature and spirits/energy that Catholic's adapted and renamed "Eve of All Saint's Day" or "Hallowed Eve" (becoming "Halloween"). On this day - October 31st - people are encouraged to dress up and "trick ot treat" to fool the spirits that roam the earth.
Halloween is my favorite holiday.

I'm going to dress-up as a cat or Madonna for Halloween.

It's when you dress up in either cheap, store-bought costumes or elaborate, self-made ones, watch Rocky Horror Picture Show, get your friends to do the Time Warp, and go on a severe candy binge. Until someone spoils your fun by reminding you that it's April.
Halloween is when you're supposed to beat up little kids dressed-up as Sponge Bob Square Pants.

The time of the year when you pass out candy to fat children.
If they're not fat they will be next year!

All Hallow's Eve, the evening of October 31st.

Halloween was Christianity`s failed attempt at eradicating paganism in the 9th Century.
Originally, the pagans dedicated the period of late October to early November as a time for honoring their ancestors. Then along came the Christians, who declared November 1st to be All Saints Day and forced the pagans to honor that day instead. The pagans simply celebrated their ancient traditions in secret on the evening before November 1st.
When the Medieval Era ended, and the age of Protestantism began, the pagan tradition was celebrated more openly, eventually becoming an evening holiday in the Western Hemisphere.
During Halloween, the children, dressed up in their favorite costumes, go door-to-door throughout the neighborhood, asking for candy or snacks.
