Halloween is commonly practice! But what is it really? Is it a religious tradition or plain tradition? Where did it start to be celebrated?

Are you in favor of celebrating it or not?

No idea about Halloween. But we do have a similar day back home where family members from the house where there had been a death in that year parade in street dressed in funny as well as scary outfit to pay respect to the dead ones.

Does anyone really care ?

It's been going for donkey's years. It started off with the Celts in ancient Britain. Now, It's a mix of religious, druid and floklore.
