it was Halloween.

In Japan, these days many people disguised themselves as something. But, in my case, I have not did anythimg special in Halloween. But, I get interested in Halloween history.

It is said that the origin of Halloween is Kelt. Halloween is a yearly celebration on 31 october. Originaly, Halloween day celebrates the harvest in autumn, and drive evils.But naw Halloween day become a festival without religious meanings.

Children dressed up as witches or ghost and visit other’s house. They say trick or treat.

Halloween day is similar to お盆. The similar part of them is that both welcome the spirit of dead persons. Obon is originated in Buddism. In Halloween, people dressed up as something, but in Obon people don’t disguised themselves. This is the difference between Halloween and Obon.
