The evening before All Hallows’ Day, Halloween, from October 31st to November 1st, was especially popular in Catholic Ireland in its beginnings. Irish immigrants in the United States of America followed this tradition to remember their origin and extended it. Since the 1990s, the Halloween customs, building on the American traditions, have become popular in Europe. Youngsters and children dress up as zombies or other scary characters on the evening before All Hallows’ day and go around in groups. They knock on each door and ask, “Trick or Treat”, which is a way of asking for candy.
