HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS IN CANADA

As with any other parts of the world, Halloween is celebrated with much pomp and glory in Canada as well. The festival signifies that night of the year when, as per the ancient Celtic beliefs, the dead and the deceased rise from their graves and mingle with the world of the living. The festival is celebrated on the 31st of October and is considered to have originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian All Saints’ Day. The major activities during the festival are ‘trick-or-treat’, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions and so on. The many customs of the festival were introduced to the people of Canada by the Irish and the Scottish, who migrated to the region during different periods.
