halloween is the night of October 31, the eve of All Saints' Day, commonly celebrated by children who dress in costume and have candy or other treats and they go door-to-door.
Halloween started in Ireland about 2,000 years ago with a group of people called the Celtics.
They believed in a god called Samhain who was the god of dead and darkness.
October 31st was considered the end of the year and as a result they threw a large celebration, which was known as Samhain.
This celebration of the autumn harvest and the Celtic new year, when they believed spirits could come back and visit with living relatives.
The Celtics started halloween but it was first called all hallows eve.
