Halloween is here at Allen Community College. The leaves are starting to change color and the fall decorations are finally being put up. While Halloween isn’t known as a national holiday, it is a very popular day in the states.

Halloween originated from the ancient Celtic festival, Samhain. The people that participated in Samhain lighted bonfires and dressed in costumes to ward off ghosts.

In today’s society, Halloween is often celebrated with pumpkins, costumes, and candy. The most popular tradition on Halloween night is dressing up and going trick-or-treating.

Sophomore Baylee Emery said, “My favorite thing about Halloween is getting to spend time with all your friends and all the memories made during the night.”
