Halloween (or Hallowe'en) is a holiday celebrated on October 31.  It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints. It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and Pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones. Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America during Ireland's potato famine of 1846. The day is often associated with the colors orange and black, and is strongly associate with symbols such as the jack-o'-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies.

festival of all saints (festum omnium sanctorum), also formerly known as all hallows, or hallowmas, a feast of the catholic church celebrated on the 1st of november in honor of all the saints, known or-unknown. in the roman catholic church it is a festival of the first rank, with a vigil and an octave. common commemorations, by several churches, of the deaths of martyrs began to be celebrated in the 4th century. the origin of the festival of all saints as celebrated in the west is, however, somewhat doubtful. in 609 or 610 pope boniface iv. consecrated the pantheon at rome to the blessed virgin and all the martyrs, and the feast of the dedicatio sanctae mariae and martyres has been celebrated at rome ever since on the 13th of may.

festival of all saints(所有圣人的节日) 原来叫作all hallows(一切神圣)或hallowmas(万圣节),无论知名与否,天主教堂为了表示对所有的圣人敬意,于11月1日设盛宴进行庆祝活动。在罗马天主教堂,它是上等人的节日,同时举办虔诚的守夜和节后第八天的庆祝。由数个教堂举办的缅怀殉教者的普通纪念会开始于四世纪。但是,像在西方庆祝的万圣节的起源或多或少令人怀疑。609年或610年,罗马教皇博尼费斯四世在罗马献祭万神殿祝福圣女和所有的殉教者,敬祭圣母玛利亚和殉教者的宴会自从那年的5月13日以来一直闻名于世。
