“All Hallow’s Eve” is the evening before the religious feast of All Saints (aka All Hallow’s Day), remembering the dead, saints and martyrs of Christianity. Many Halloween traditions are believed to have originated in ancient Celtic harvest festivals and pagan traditions. It was primarily Irish immigrants to the US who brought with them many secular traditions such as trick-or-treating, Halloween costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns and lighting bonfires. Kids are sure to have fun with these, and so do street photographers. And all is not lost, because sometimes it seems that the good wizard tries to kill the monster.
I wish you all a very spooky Halloween (stay safe endlessly)
