When is Halloween 2021?

Halloween is the current name of an old Celtic holiday "Samhain."It celebrated on October 31 every year. People celebrate this day as a perfect beginning of a new year. The different activities performed in Halloween are mostly connected with the idea to obtain good fortune.

It is assumed that on this day, the spirits of the dead come back to earth in search of existing bodies to hold for the next year and try to return to the homes where they were staying. So to satisfy these spirits, people present them fruits and nuts. If the souls are not happy, it is feared that the spirits would kill the people or ruin their life.

Immigrants from Scotland and Ireland brought this vacation to the United States. The Halloween commercialization began in the 1900s when postcards and die-cut paper decorations were created. Halloween costumes appear in stores of the US in the 1930s, and in the 1950s, the trick-and-treat custom was introduced. The types of products available in the Halloween style increased over time. Nowadays, Halloween is a very profitable or money-making holiday for the makers of costumes, yard decorations, and candy.

How people celebrate Halloween?

Halloween is commonly seen between family, friends, and sometimes coworkers. Parties and other events may organize on October 31, before or after this date on weekends. Adults may celebrate Halloween by watching horror films, holding costume parties, or building haunted homes or graves.

Many children wear fancy clothes and move to other houses in the neighborhood. They ask for sweets, snacks, or gifts. If they do not get the treat, they threaten to do any harm to their residents of the house. It is known as playing 'trick-or-treat' and seen as a friendly feeling, with no bad or mean tricks. However, if your children play, it is essential to accompany them and to check their 'treats' to make sure they are secure to eat or play.

Some groups create lanterns with 'scary' faces out of pumpkins or other vegetables and decorate their homes and backyards in Halloween style. These were traditionally indicated to drive away evil spirits. If you are at home on Halloween day, it is a good idea to have a bowl of small gifts or desserts to offer them who knocks your door. That will help you to satisfy the little lives in your neighborhood.

One idea is that relationships with Halloween are raising donations for the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF). On Halloween night, some youngsters take small cardboard boxes with the UNICEF logo on them to collect coins rather than the usual candy at the time of trick-or-treating. The money raised from this then give to UNICEF to support the needy kids worldwide.

Halloween is not included in the government holidays list. Government services and offices are operating as usual, and public transportation services run on their regular schedules.
