BY A STAFF REPORTER: Every year on 31st the world environment is celebrated “Halloweenball”. Kali Puja is the location day as we observe “Bhoot Chaturshi”. Fourteen-lamps are lit for Pujopatha and Purusha for Swarga Purva. Keep a lamp lit in the place of office in the month of Kartik, so that by the light our forefathers know the path from the sky and tell their relatives.

Now, not only in western countries, but also in many other countries like India, Holoin is celebrated with pomp. Every year on October 31, Christians around the world celebrate this day to remember the ancestors. Saints, heroes and martyrs are remembered on this day. In honor of the Saints, prayers are offered for the repose of the souls of those who have not yet reached heaven.

In fact, Holoin originates from the ancient Celtic festival 'Samhain'. Which was their harvest ceremony. About two thousand years ago, Celtic communities lived mostly in present-day Ireland, the United States, and northern France. This day signifies the summer harvest, the coming of a dark and cold winter. Halloween was celebrated as the end of the season.

Halloween is celebrated on October 31 every year. As mentioned earlier, Halloween is celebrated to mark the connection between summer and winter, the living and the dead. It is believed that on Halloween, the distance between the living and the dead is bridged.
