As summer starts to come to an end, fall is just beginning. For some people, they are super excited for the leaves to fall and do fall activities. Many people are ready for 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform. There are so many things to be excited about this October. For anyone who does not exactly understand what Halloween is, On the night of October 31 people celebrated Samhain, Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year,  when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. People were to light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. So since the legend was told, people were to do those activities to make sure that spirits would not get them the last night of October.

Besides all of the Halloween scare, October is also a wonderful time to reflect and look at how the year has been so far. October is a time to get excited for the spooky movies and shows, late bonfires in the fall breeze, and so much more. There are different emotions that go on during fall. Everyone gets ready for the weather to change and the nights to get better. During Halloween, anyone can go to different activities like Kennywood’s Fright Night, Demon House, Fright Farm, or any kind of spooky houses to go see.

A lot of people also like to go trick or treating on Halloween. Trick or treating is a huge tradition for basically everybody! Trick or treating is a great time for kids and tweens to get all dressed up and go door to door for candy. Of course kids love this holiday and some parents do too. There are also costume parties that happen during October and fun bonfire parties.
