Some centuries later, the Christians had another celebration on the same day called All Hallows. That was a celebration which is about a special holy day to honour the saints and the other people who died for their religion. The day before All Hallows was called All Hallows Eve. Some years later the name became Halloween.
The Europeans who lived at that time thought that at night the dead people will come to visit them on Earth. To escape from the dead people, they dressed up in costumes and they looked as dead people. So the dead would think that they're also dead and they won't harm them.
This is why we put pumpkins out of our houses today and we dress up in scary costumes. Some kids in America knock on the people's doors and say ''trick or treat''. Usually the people say 'treat' and they give candy to the kids.

Halloween is a very old celebration.Around 2000 years ago, some people lived called the Celts.November the 1st was their New Year's Day. At the night before the New Year they believed that the living and the dead came together.The Christian church named November the 1st All Saints day (All Hallows) and the eve (Hallows eve) became Halloween.Also, they used to carry lanterns and dress up like evil craetures. They believed that the bad spirits will hurt them. In America they carried pumpkins. They decorated them with scary faces.Today Halloween is for children and they celebrate almost for a month.They dress up and they knock on people's doors. They say "trick or treat?''. Boys' favourite costume is the pirate.

Frank and Jesse James were amazing. They were criminals in the Wild West from 1886 to 1915. They robbed trains and banks. They had a lot of ideas about how to rob the trains. One of them was to pull the rail tracks. With that idea, the train fell down and then it exploded.They used that idea a lot of times to rob and destroy the trains. I like Frank and Jesse James because they very strong and ruthless.
