In the United Kingdom, Halloween traditions are very popular, especially among kids and teenagers. We looked at some of the most common activities.
These are pumpkins with the inside removed and eyes, a mouth and a nose cut into one side. A candle is placed inside the empty pumpkin and the light creates a scary face effect. People use pumpkin lanterns to decorate their homes at Halloween. Do people actually eat their pumpkins? Yes, they do! Pumpkin soup and pumpkin curry are very popular meals at this time of year.把南瓜内瓤掏空，在一面上刻上眼睛、嘴巴和鼻子。然后在这个空心南瓜里点上一支蜡烛，烛光透过南瓜上的“面孔”，营造出了一种恐怖氛围。万圣节时，人们会用这种南瓜灯来装饰屋子。那么人们会吃掉这些南瓜吗？答案是肯定的！每年的这个时候，南瓜汤和南瓜咖喱都备受欢迎。
To play this game, place some apples in a large bowl of water. The competitors have to take a bite from one of the apples without using their hands. To make this more difficult, the competitors have their eyes covered with a scarf. You are not allowed to use the sides of the bowl to help you bite the apple. This game often involves getting very wet so it's a good idea to bring a towel!
People of all ages dress up on Halloween. The most popular fancy dress costumes include witches, vampires, ghosts, skeletons, zombies and monsters. You can buy a costume from a shop or you can make your own at home. It's easy to make a ghost costume from an old white sheet or wear black clothes to look like a witch.
Children dress up and then visit the houses in their neighborhood asking for a "trick or treat". The neighbor gives them sweets or money as a "treat". If there is no treat, the children play a trick on the neighbor. Some people think that playing tricks is unkind but luckily there is nearly always a treat. This custom is imported from the United States and is more popular with young people than with adults. Young children usually go trick-or-treating with parents or an older brother or sister.
Whether you decide to go to a Halloween party or go trick-or-treating, we hope you've got some ideas for celebrating Halloween.不论你是决定参加一场万圣节派对，还是玩“不给糖就捣乱”，我们都希望你能从文章中找到些庆祝万圣节的点子。
