the night of Halloween is on the 31st of October.
All Hallows Eve was originally a pagan festival to celebrate the end of Summer and the beginning of Winter.
In Earlier days, bonfires were lit and animals passed around them to make certain of good stocks for the winter ahead.
All Hallows Eve is also the night when ghosts may be able to visit the living and pass on messages.
This is the origin of Halloween Festivities such as fortune telling .
Scary Masks were traditional and part of earlier riotous parties
Various countries carry on the Halloween traditions and these are usually great fun.
Theme Parks have taken on the mantle of Halloween parties and these vary wildly in the frightening parties that they offer.
These vary from Disneys not-so-scary Ghost procession to Universals horrific offerings which offer the ability to be scared by all kinds of monsters from films and the past.
