31st OCTOBER: SOME HALLOWEEN ACTIVITIES



It's 31st October again, that means it's Halloween again!
In Halloween children and some adults usually disguise themselves in costumes.
Houses are decorated with Jack-O-Lanterns, lots of spiders, cobwebs, witches and ghosts.
On Halloween evening in the USA, groups of children are seen walking round the neighbourhood dressed up in costumes, visiting houses to get sweets.
Typical Halloween festive activities are:
- Trick or treat (going round houses to receive sweets).
- Going to costume parties.
- Decorating places. Carving pumpkins to make Jack-O-Lanterns.
- Lighting bonfires.
- Apple bobbingThe game is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than water, they will float at the surface. Players then try to catch one with their teeth. Use of arms is not allowed, and often are tied behind the back to prevent cheating.
- Visiting haunted houses.
- Telling scary stories.
- Watching terror films.
