   In my home country, Korea,there are no Halloween celebrations. October 31 is not a special day for koreans. So, I am really looking forward to my First Holloween.    



   The First, Hallowwn has a very interesting history. Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtic Festival of samhain which was celebrated between October 31 and November 1. On the night of October 31 the Celtic celebrated samhanin. They believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. To remembrer the event Celtic priests built huge bonfires and burned crops and animals as sacrifices to the Gods. Both the Romans and Christians kept the Celtic paractice of Samhain and eventually. It became known as Halloween.  



   Secondly dressing up in Halloween costumes sounds like lots of fun. I have chosen a witch's costume. I have a hat that has a long and pointed top and a wide rime. It is quite long with a Jagged hem. Perhaps I will wear some make-up, but I won't be an ugly witch. I am not sure which costume my friend is going to wear, but I know she is going to have a weird costume because she told me. I have never worn a coustume before, so this will be a new experience for me. I'm also thrilled that OSS is having a Halloween costume contest. I wnat to win.  


   Thirdly, going trick or treating suounds very enjoyable. I can't wait to go trick or treating with my friend. I am really excited about seeing the decorations of hoouses and people's costmes. I have heard that people put scary dolls in their windows. and in their yards. Also, they decorate their homes with skeletocns, coffins, tomb stones, spiders and spider webs. My friends told me that some people play scary music to frighten the children. I think I am not going to be frightened, but I plan to have fun.


   I am planning to get lots of candies as well. I like jelly candies. I hope I get lots of them. I don't want to get boring stuff, like toothbrushes or pencils. But if I do get them I will say "Thank you"   Therefore, I'am relly looking forward to my first Hallowwn. I hope I have an exciting time.
