Halloween is more than just candy.

Halloween has just recently pasted. Every year I always look to Halloween. A day where I candy, fantastic. However, there is more to Halloween than just treat-or-treating and receiving candy.

As everybody knows, Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of every October. Halloween is in fact deemed by Pope Gregory III All Saints’ Day eve proving that Halloween has some original religious intention.  As with time, All Saints Day or All Hallows Day aspect faded away bringing rise to All Hallows’ Eve and eventually Halloween.

Instead of being a religious observance day, Halloween such evolved into a community-based event in which children and adults dress up in costumes and go trick-or-treating to obtain candy.

However, Halloween is celebrated in other countries, but with a format and name such as the Dia de los Muertos in Mexico.

In the end, there is more than candy. There is a history behind it and not just the United States celebrate it, other countries do too in different forms. These deep aspects of Halloween makes me want another Halloween in the year.
