Halloween, also known as Halloween or All Souls Night is a celebration of Celtic origin which is celebrated internationally on the night of October 31 , especially in Anglo-Saxon countries such as Canada, USA, Ireland or the United Kingdom and, to a lesser extent, in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru or Latin America overall. Despite being purely Anglo-Saxon countries, in Australia and New Zealand is not as observed in other countries.

Its roots are linked to the Celtic celebration of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, celebrated by Catholics on November 1st. It is largely a secular celebration, but some believe it has a religious background. Irish immigrants passed versions of the tradition to North America during the Great Irish Famine.

The day is often associated with the colors orange, black and purple and is strongly associated with symbols like the jack- o' -lantern. Typical activities include the famous Halloween trick or treating and costume parties, plus bonfires, visiting haunted houses, jokes, reading scary stories and viewing of horror films
