Usually the adults who don't have kids have a big party and get dressed up too.
That's kind of cool. But what does "Trick" mean?
Usually it's the older kids going around playing pranks, like punching the pumpkins left outside people's doors, or hanging a roll of toilet paper in someone's tree. They usually do it late at night after the little kids go home.
They're supposed to say "Trick or Treat". Then their neighbor is supposed to hand out some candy.
It sounds kind of fun. Maybe I could get together with my friends that night.
I'd love to. I heard about Halloween when I was in Beijing. It's a kind of children's day. Small kids get dressed up, then walk around with paper bags or baskets knocking on their neighbor's doors. But what do they say when their neighbor answers?
Tomorrow is Halloween. I know I'm ready. I bought two pumpkins and a big bag of candy. Do you want to help me make a jack-o'-lantern?
That does sound like a lot of fun.
