The month is amber, Gold and brown. Blue ghosts of smoke Float through the town. Great V’s of geese Honk overhead, And maples turn A fiery red. Frost bites the lawn, The stars are slits In a black cat’s eye Before she spits. At last, small witches, Goblins, hags, And pirates armed With paper bags. Their costumes hinged On safety pins, Go haunt a night Of pumpkin grins.
Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints' Day, but is today largely a secular celebration.
The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin on this day, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family's ancestors were honoured and invited home while harmful spirits were warded off.
No sun, no light, Not even a spark, The whole world Is completely dark. The clock strikes twelve, You hear it chime, Not one single person Is awake at this time. No other color Than black is to see.
You notice a monster, During the day it’s a tree. Though there’s no wind, You can smell the crisp air. The shapes you see, Are the creeps of your nightmare. No sun, no lamp, Not a single light. So dark, so black, In the middle of the night.
Halloween costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. They are said to be used to scare off demons. Costumes are also based on themes other than traditional horror, such as those of characters from television shows, movies, and other pop culture icons.
