Halloween is my favorite holiday! On Tuesday, we get to celebrate this joyous holiday with candy, costumes, and fright all around .Yet, the pumpkin seems to be a common symbol of Halloween. Well, maybe the Jack-O-Lantern, a carved out pumpkin with a face that is meant to scare away the evil spirits that, according to Celtic lore, return when the veil is the thinnest between the living and the dead. Today, many of the traditions of Ireland have been adopted today for the tradition that is Halloween. Originally called Samhain, October 31st is a day where many participates in the festivities of All Hallows Eve.
