On All Hallows’ Eve, Christians in some parts of the world visit cemeteries to pray and place flowers and candles on the graves of their loved ones.

Halloween or Hallowe’en; less commonly known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve
is a celebration observed in many countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Saints’ Day

From at least the 16th century, the festival included mumming and guising in Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man and Wales. Elsewhere in Europe, mumming was part of other festivals, but in the Celtic-speaking regions, it was “particularly appropriate to a night upon which supernatural beings were said to be abroad and could be imitated or warded off by human wanderers”

Halloween costumes were traditionally modeled after figures such as vampires, ghosts, skeletons, scary looking witches, and devils. There are several games traditionally associated with Halloween. Some of these games originated as divination rituals or ways of foretelling one’s future, especially regarding death, marriage and children.

Haunted attractions are entertainment venues designed to thrill and scare patrons. Most attractions are seasonal Halloween businesses that may include haunted houses, corn mazes, and hayrides, and the level of sophistication of the effects has risen as the industry has grown.
