Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31. The tradition originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain.

The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating treats.

Things to do this Halloween:

  • Watch a scary movie – It’s the easiest solution to still get your spooky fix, and doesn’t involve you leaving your couch. Win-win.


  • Carve pumpkins – If you want to do something that requires a bit (just a bit!) more physical activity than watching a movie, pick up a pumpkin and break out your carving knife. You’ll get into the Halloween spirit and get an arm workout. 


  • Go bobbing for apples – This is such an autumn activity, but how many people actually do it? Without trick-or-treating, now you can try!


  • Head to a Halloween party or host one of your own – If you’re afraid of getting scared (we get it), skip the horror and instead celebrate Halloween with a party. If you don’t know anyone hosting one, step up to the plate yourself! 


  • Bake a cake – Put an adult twist on Halloween candy with a candy-filled cake recipe. Tasty and it’ll keep you occupied.


  • Hand out sweets – Passing along your favourite Halloween traditions to the next generation? Well, there’s really nothing sweeter, is there?
