Halloween is also known as All Hallows' Eve, it is a yearly celebration observed in a great number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Saints and the day initiating the triduum of Hallowmas. According to many scholars, All Halloween is a Christianised feast originally influenced by western European harvest festivals, and festivals of the dead with possible pagan roots, particularly the Celtic Samhain. Other scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.
There are several game activities traditionally associated with Halloween parties. One common game is dunking or apple bobbing, in which apples float in a tub or a large basin of water and the participants must use their teeth to remove an apple from the basin.Another game or superstition that was enjoyed in the early 1900s involved walnut shells. People would write fortunes in milk on white paper. After drying, the paper was folded and placed in walnut shells. When the shell was warmed, milk would turn brown therefore the writing would appear on what looked like blank paper. Folks would also play fortune teller, where symbols were cut out of paper and placed on a platter. Someone would enter a dark room and put her hand on a piece of ice then lay it on a platter. Her fortune would stick to the hand. Symbols included: dollar sign - wealth, button - bachelorhood, clothespin - poverty, rice - wedding, and more
