Halloween is an observance celebrated on the night of October 31, most
notably by children dressing in costumes and going door-to-door collecting
candy. It is celebrated in much of the Western world, though most common

and other places in the New World.
Halloween is sometimes associated with the occult. Many European cultural
traditions hold that Halloween is one of the "liminal" times
of the year when the spirit world can make contact with the natural world
and when magic is most potent (see, for example, Catalan mythology about
