During the Halloween holiday there are so many ghoulish and haunted theme costumes and decorations to be found. Homes decorated to look like a cemetery with everything from tomb stones to skeletons, and costumes for ghosts to zombies. This is definitely the holiday that we think of when we say haunted. There is an air about the town on this night that both the kids and adults love! It's fun to scare and be scared on Halloween!
Wikipedia says that the roots of Halloween are both Celtic and Christian. The Celtic view is the celebration of the end of the lighter half of the year and the beginning of the darker half of the year. It is often thought of as the Celtic New Year.
