It was first celebrated in 2005. This holiday encourages people to turn their attention to an incredibly large number of cats in need of a home. There are several ways to celebrate this holiday. All those who do not have a cat can take a kitten or an adult animal from the shelter.

Pumpkin is the main association with the fall season in the US because it is difficult to imagine both Halloween and Thanksgiving without bright orange pumpkins and dishes from them. So no wonder that on October 26 Americans celebrate a National Pumpkin Day. A few weeks before Halloween, they start going to pumpkin farms to choose pumpkins for the coming Halloween. It is a great opportunity to practice cutting out scary faces on pumpkins or making pumpkin pie according to a new recipe.
The evening before Halloween, October 30th, is known as Mischief Night. This evening, children and adolescents have an official right to trick their friends and neighbors. The first mention of this holiday dates back to 1790. Then, it took place at St. John’s College (one of the colleges of Oxford University), in the UK. Over time, Mischief Night became associated with Halloween. One of the traditions of the holiday is trick-or-treating fun. Children get dressed in costumes and go from home to home asking for sweets. If they are refused, they can play a cruel joke on the owner of the house. Typical pranks include smearing car windows with soap, throwing eggs and rotten fruits and vegetables at home. Children can wrap trees with toilet paper or ring the doorbell and then run away.
Traditionally, Halloween is celebrated in the USA on October 31, on the eve of All Saints Day. Americans are looking forward to this holiday as much as Christmas. Halloween in the United States is a national carnival for which residents of America prepare unusual costumes in advance.

Stores offer their customers a rich assortment of Halloween costumes. Everyone can dress up in a simple devil or skeleton, or in a costume of their favorite character.
