What is Halloween? How to Describe Halloween to Kids
Halloween is an American holiday on October 31, every year. On Halloween, ghosts and spirits come back to life and visit people. This can be very scary!

Children dress up in costumes on Halloween. They go door-to-door yelling “trick-or-treat” at the door. But a lot of adults dress up in costumes too. Common costumes are ghosts, witches, and movie characters.
