Bad teeth, cold fall night which could get you sick, walking towards unidentified strangers' houses, and kids walking to your doorstep asking for candy even if you run out.

What are some accepted practices of Halloween?

-- Eating candy and decorated cakes -- Dressing up in funny, frightening or outlandish costumes -- "Trick-or-treating," that is, going from house to house in one's neighborhood and receiving candy, small toys or other goodies (for kids under 16) -- Carving jack-o'-lanterns from pumpkins -- Playing mild tricks on people who don't give you candy; an example would be spraying silly string on their porch -- Attending costume parties -- Watching horror movies on TV or in the theater -- Decorating your house with the Halloween colors of orange and black, and with pictures or statues of witches, ghosts, black cats, pumpkins, skeletons and other seasonal symbols

When did Halloween start?

User Avatar
Halloween started in Ireland about 2,000 years ago with a group of people called the Celtics. They believed in a god called Samhain who was the god of dead and darkness. October 31st was considered the end of the year and as a result they threw a large celebration, which was known as Samhain. This celebration of the autumn harvest and the Celtic new year, when they believed spirits could come back and visit with living relatives.

Do they celebrate Halloween in Lithuania?

User Avatar
Not exactly. Lithuanians have an All Saint's Day called "Vėlinės" on November 1st, which is a day when lithuanians mourn people that have passed away. Something closer to Halloween would be "Užgavėnės". It is a Lithuanian festival that takes place during the seventh week before Easter. Children would go to other peoples houses, usually asking for pancakes or money.

What should you know about child safety on Halloween?

User Avatar
A few important things to know about child safety on Halloween are: Don't let them eat any candy or food that isn't already wrapped by a company, appears unwrapped, or was not wrapped at all eg. candy apples, soft pretzels, etc. If your child is allergic to anything, carefully read the labels on each piece of candy that you are unfamiliar with. Don't let your children go trick-or-treating after your town's curfew. Always carry a flashlight. You don't want your kids running off in the dark. Don't let them out trick-or-treating without a responsible older person to watch them. Be careful when crossing streets or intersections. Be sure their costume has a glow stick, bright color, reflective tape, or other means of allowing them to be seen by drivers. Watch for loose animals, such as dogs, and avoid them. Don't go to houses that do not look welcoming. Never enter a house of someone you do not know very well. If possible, carry a cell phone, two way radio, or other means of communication. The larger your group, the better.

Asked in Halloween

What does the color black represent at Halloween?

User Avatar
The color black could represent the night or darkness, where it is harder to see and there isn't any light around to show who you are (everyone is in costume and walking around in the dark). If you want to take a horror-movie perspective, it could also represent evil, or fantasy creatures that typically roam the night like vampires, werewolves, or witches.
