Are you gals exciting about the upcoming Halloween? Have you prepared for it?
Today ZAFUL would like to introduces 5 things you should know about Halloween.
It is said that a man named Jack encounters the Devil. He manages to trap the Devil and
strikes a bargain thatSatan can never claim his soul. After a life of sin, drink, and lies,
Jack is refused to enter heaven when he dies. Keeping his promise, the Devil refuses to let Jack into hell.
As it was a cold night, the Devil throws a live coal straight from the fires of hell at him.
Jack places the coal in a hollowed out turnip to stop it from going out,
since then Jack and his lantern have been roaming looking for a place to rest.
Halloween costumes are traditionally modelled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts,
skeletons, witches, and devils. Over time, in the United States, the costume selection extended to include
popular characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas and princesses.
Trick-or-treating is a custom for children on Halloween. Children go in costume from house to house,
asking for treats such as candy or coins with the question:
“Trick or treat?”
The word “trick” implies a “threat” to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given
Elements like pumpkins, corn husks, scarecrows, witches, vampires, and
other mythical monsters are the symbols for Halloween.
And usually, black, orange, and purple are Halloween’s traditional colors.
As Halloween comes after the yearly apple harvest, candy apples/toffee apples are common Halloween treats,
made by rolling whole apples in a sticky sugar syrup, sometimes followed by rolling them in nuts.

Monkey nuts (peanuts in their shells), caramel corn, Colcannon, Halloween cake, novelty candy shaped like
skulls, pumpkins, bats or worms, roasted pumpkin seeds, roasted sweet corn, soul cakes.
