Why do we celebrate Halloween?
The moment we come across the word “Halloween”, we start imagining all sorts of spooky and scary elements.
Halloween is celebrated with a lot of zeal and fervour across many countries of the world. But, why is it so that Halloween celebrations are accompanied by wearing weird, ghostly costumes? And that people talk of witches, ghosts and haunted houses? (Creepy, isn’t it?)
Well, we’ll tell you why.
31st October, All Hallow’s Eve or All Saints’ eve later came to be popularly known as Halloween. All Saints’ Day is celebrated on 1st November.
Halloween commemorates the death of saints, martyrs, etc. The day honors the people who went to Heaven. People light bonfires and wear scary costumes in order to ward off ghosts and evil souls. It is believed that the reason why people wear masks or blacken their faces is to stay unnoticed by ghosts.
Yet today, Halloween has become a big event that includes spooky attires, playing games and talking about ghostly things just to have fun.

Get kids dressed up all eerie in this Halloween game.
Divide kids into two teams.
Here’s how the game goes.
Set the timer on. Each team has to dress one of their team members as the Mummy with bath tissues. They need to cover the team member entirely leaving only the eyes and nose visible. Next, the Mummy team member has to walk to a finish line (that you decide).
The team that does all of it faster, from dressing up a team member to reaching the finish line, wins the game.
Here teams have to blow balloons and paste them on a board or any big-size rectangular paper in the shape of a pumpkin (outline of which can be drawn by you). Then, they have to prick and burst the pumpkin.
The team who finishes the task first wins the game.
On Halloween, people carve out pumpkins in a weird fashion. These are called jack-o’-lanterns.
The game here for kids is to draw them on paper and show their drawing-coloring skills!
