In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

I know there's already a discussion about Halloween in another section but it's closed. So basically, if I remember well on the night of Oct. 31st the Celts believed the Dead came back to Earth and hence they dressed up as spooky creatures to show they were friends with the Spirits. In France it was very popular in the 1990s but now very few kids go tricking or treating. But I still dress for the occasion and buy treats, as well as set up the Halloween decoration.
