The origin of Halloween goes back as far as 800BC.
The Irish Celts celebrated Samhain at the end of October
a. to celebrate the end of the summer season,
b. to give thanks for the season of harvest and
c. to honor the dead.
Halloweenis not a Christian festival but one of the biggest festival of the Celtic.
The Celts believed that the souls of the dead could return to roam freely among the living in search of a living body to possess, usually a black cat.
"Trick or treat"
To comfort the lost souls, parcels of food and gifts were placed on the doorstep. They will find the treat, eat it and leave in peace.
"Jack O Lanterns"
People used to put a candle in an hollowed-out vegetable (e.g. a turnip) to ward off evil when they were out walking at night. The Irish started to use pumpkins after they came to America.

In doing this project , I learn how to celebrate Halloween and make up as a witch .Certainly , I still learn the history about Halloween . Halloween is not a Christian festival but one of the biggest festival of the Celtic. Many people do not like to celebrate in Halloween because they think Halloween is the festival for the Dead, and the most important Sabbath of the year. After I know that , I am very frightened . But when I ask mum , she said “Don’t be afraid of that . If you dress up in scary costumes , they will walk away . Then you can enjoy your Halloween .”So , each year I will dress up in scary costumes . Hope you enjoy Halloween , too .
Halloween is a very popular festival back in the world. Many people love that festival including me.In Hong Kong, children like to dress up as monsters, witches in their school on Halloween evening, but they wouldn’t celebrate at night. Some of the people would go to Lan Kwan Fong Street to celebrate this festival .
How about me? This year I celebrated it at school. The teachers held a Halloween party during lunch times. Some students wore monster mask to trick people, they were very ugly and terrible. My classmates and I went from classroom to classroom and said ‘trick or treat’. They were in the classroom and gave us sweets. I enjoyed that party very much, because I got a lot of sweets.
After finishing this project, I learned to understand the origin of Halloween and the custom of the Halloween in the different places , some Halloween' s words, such as the vampire, mummy, science eccentric ,etc.And our members of the teamwork is very good!

I know many things about Halloween. And I think Halloween is a really good festival besides asking for the candies.(I like eating candies very much),we can dressed up like a ghost or a bitch.This festival is not so scary at all.
Every country or area celebrates Halloween differently .I think Halloween only brushes-up ghost ,witch and play trick or treat, takes some sweets. Now I realize that Halloween is a funny festival.This project can improve my English standard and enhance the friendship with my team members.
