Popular British Holidays
I’m glad to tell you that my friend invited me to visit him. On the 30th of October I’ll arrive in London and we’ll have fun celebrating Halloween. It is my favourite holiday.
Halloween means 'holy evening' and takes place on the 31st of October. It is particularly connected with witches and ghosts.
At parties people dress up in strange costumes and pretend they are witches. They cut horrible faces in potatoes and other vegetables and put a candle inside, which shines through the eyes. People may play difficult games such as trying to eat an apple from a bucket of water without using their hands.
