How is Halloween celebrated in America ?
The symbol of Halloween is a laughing pumpkin. After the pumpkin is emptied and carved into a smiling face, a candle is lit in it to create a demonic face.
The most commonly consumed candy is apple candy. The children walk door to door wearing scary clothes and ask the hosts, “Joke or candy ?” they ask. “No joke!” they make various pranks to the lesson. Seniors offer candy to children or give pocket money. This practice has its origins in the past tradition of the poor in Britain going door to door collecting “soul cakes”.
Adults organize dress up balls at the nearest weekend to October 31st. At these parties, guests wear scary costumes such as a witch, ghost or horror movie character.
Conservative Christians, especially conservative Protestants, often do not celebrate Halloween and find it wrong.
