Halloween also known as All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31. According to many scholars, it was originally influenced by western European harvest festivals and festivals of the dead with possible pagan roots. Others maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has Christian roots.
Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lightingbonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
Trick-or-treating is a customary celebration for children on Halloween. Children go in costume from house to house, asking for treats such as candy or sometimes money, with the question, "Trick or treat?" The word "trick" refers to a  "threat" to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given.
Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. Over time, the costume selection extended to include popular characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas and princesses.

October is National Orthodontic Health Month.
October also winds up with Halloween, one of
our favorite holidays. Kids with braces need to
be careful when they bite into treats.
Remember caramels, taffy, nuts, bubble gum,
popcorn kernels and suckers are some of the
foods you’re not to have! Eating these “off
limit” foods will break your braces and lengthen
treatment time.
Bobbing for apples is not recommended for
braces. Orthodontic patients can enjoy thinly
sliced apples, dipped in yogurt or creamy
chocolate sauce.
Of course, Halloween does not have to be
completely treat-less. Plain chocolate candy is
OK, provided you remember to brush and floss
