The spooky festival of Halloween is celebrated across the globe on October 31.
However, it is more than costume and candy.
The word Halloween means hallowed evening or holy evening.
Its history goes back over 2,000 years.
Halloween originates from ancient Celtic festival Samhain celebrated on the last day of harvest.
It is also known as All Saints’ Eve in some countries.
On this day, people dress in their scariest costumes.
Pumpkins with ghoulish faces and illuminated by candles are a common sight.
In a rare occasion, Halloween will coincide with Blue Moon this year.
This will be the first Blue Moon to appear on Halloween since 1944.
So, get ready to view the rare occurrence or else you will have to wait until 2039.
