In October, families in the U.S. start to decorate their houses for Halloween.  This is a fun day for children.  For example, this house is surrounded by pumpkins.  People buy pumpkins and carve them with scary faces or shapes.  On Halloween night, they put a candle inside and put them on their front porch.

Children dress up in costumes and go house to house.  They knock on the door and shout “Trick or Treat!”  This means they want candy.

Many parents and children make their costumes together.  Other people buy their costumes at the store.  Even adults go to Halloween parties dressed in costumes.
