Halloween is celebrated on October 31st every year. The holiday began as a Celtic festival from Ireland called Samhain.  Halloween is traditionally a holiday that is meant to ward off evil spirits. During the time of the Celtic traditions, people would carve out scary faces and figures in giant turnips, place a candle inside, and set in their windows to scare away evil ghosts and enemies on Halloween.
