"When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers 'tis near Halloween."
– BETSY FARRELL
Halloween, the festival dedicated to ghosts and the dead is around the corner. People celebrating this festival wear costumes of ghosts, or any other famous celebrity (nowadays) and drink and party together. It is basically India during the time of the Ramleela before the festival of Dussehra. It is known to be originated in the ancient Celtic region when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. The day involves child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating (for the kids) and dressing up and celebrating.
