We call Halloween “All Hallow’s Eve” because Hallows means “holy.” All Hallows Eve is the day before All Saints Day. At this time people honored there ancestors. People do things to honor the dead and scare away the evil spirits. They also, do things such as put on costumes and carved pumpkins. They carve the pumpkins into little monster faces. Now it has become a national holiday that most people celebrate.
