i bet most of you associate this day with pumpkins, skeletons, bonfires, ghosts or vampires. ofc well known is the phrase 'trick or treat?' too. it's obvious, not only for people from countries, where this holiday is primarily observed - i mean USA, UK, Canada and Ireland. even the Polish are taking part in Halloween activities like for example: wearing costumes, visittin' scary places (like old houses), telling ghost stories and watching horror movies. it's chance to spend the last of October's evening in an interesting way.
but.. it's important to show the difference. in Poland 31st of October is above all - All Saints' Day Eve. Activities, which i above-mentioned are rather the manners to know better the culture of other countries, but for Polish this day is significantly much more melancholy. that's the day for visiting cemeteries. we leave the flowers, candles at the graves and say our prayers.
what am i gonna to do on Halloween Day? i'll join this two ways to spend this evening; firstly i'll watch with my friends some absolutely scary movie. and then we'll all go to the cemetery and light up the candles. then we'll be sitting and talking about all this sad things, which are hidden under the cover of commercial meanings.
