The 31st of November is a religious ([r ɪ 'l ɪʤ əs] религиозный) holiday known as All Saints’ Day. The evening before became known as Halloween. Many centuries (['sen ʧ ər ɪ ] век) ago Celts ([kelts] кельты) celebrated (праздновали) Halloween in Ireland and Scotland. They believed (верили) that evil spirits (злые духи) visited the earth on the 31 st of October at night before All Holy Ones' Day. Here comes the name: Halloween from “hallo” – saint and “eve” – evening. Celts were afraid (боялись) of witches and dressed up costumes to frighten (испугать) evil spirits. They also put food and small presents for witches at the doors of their houses. Here comes the word expression (выражение): “trick or treat”.
Today there are lots of Hallowe’en parties. People dress up as witches, ghosts, devils, cats or bats. Houses are decorated (украшать) with pumpkins (тыквы) and candles inside them (внутри них). Some children follow the American custom called Trick or Treat. They knock (стучать) at your house and ask, “Trick or Treat?” If you give some money or some sweets (a treat), they go away. If not, they can play a trick on you, like splashing (плеснуть) water in your face. No Halloween party is complete (завершена) without a scary ['sk ɛ ər ɪ ] story (страшилка). Usually people crowd ([kraud] собираются) together around a fire on Halloween night. And one person tells a scary story in a low voice.

One day Ann and her brother Tom were taking their dog Bob for a walk. Suddenly, Bob saw a cat in the garden of the big old house at the end of the street...
Tom: Where did he go? Ann: I’m nor sure. I think he ran into the house. Tom: Come on. Let’s find him. Ann: No, I’m not going in there. Tom: Why not? Do you think it’s haunted? Ann: Don’t be silly. It’s dark. You can’t see anything. Tom: It doesn’t matter. We can hear Bob. Come on. It’s OK. Ann: Ow! Tom: What happened? Ann: I walked into something. I can’t see what it is. Tom: What does it feel like? Ann: Hard, you idiot!
Tom: Shhh! Did you hear that? Ann: No. Tom: Shhh! Listen! It sounds like a baby crying. Ann: Oooh! I heard that. I’m going! Tom: Aaagh! Help! Ann: What’s wrong? Tom: Something touched my face. Ann: Ha ha! Maybe it was a ghost! Tom: It felt like a cobweb. Yeuch! I hate spiders.
Ann: Ugh! What’s that smell? Tom: I’m not sure. It smells like rotten fruit. Ann: It smells horrible. Tom: It smells like your socks! Ann: Shut up you! And don’t do that! Tom: What? Ann: Touch my hair. Tom: It wasn’t me. I’m over here. Ann: AAAAGH! Run for it Tom!!!
