Chinese people seldom pay attention to Halloween, and a little Halloween knowledge of Chinese people immediately associates with pumpkins. In fact, Halloween is far more than pumpkins!
We say that Halloween Eve, the day before Halloween, October 31, is a traditional festival in the western world. The celebrations are usually in the evening. Mainly prevalent in the Saxon descendants of the United States, the British Islands, Australia, Canada and New Zealand and other Western countries.
That night, children will wear makeup clothes, masks, go door to door collecting candy and so on.
Traditionally, Europe considers Halloween the closest time in the spiritual world. This legend is similar to East Asia's Zhongyuan Festival and Yulan Festival. Anoka, Minnesota, is known as the "capital of Halloween in the world" and celebrates a large-scale cruise every year at this time.

What do you usually eat on Halloween? Halloween has the following main foods:
Halloween Eve food：toffee apples
As Halloween is approaching the harvest of apples, toffee apples have become a holiday food. The method is to insert an apple into a bamboo stick, then hold the bamboo stick and turn the apple in the toffee syrup, sometimes sticking the nuts again. In the past, families prepared toffee apples for children, but when it was rumored that some people put pins and blades into apples, the habit of sending toffee apples gradually disappeared. Although most of the cases are just hoaxes and the real cases are minor injuries, many parents still think that it is very common to put razors in apples.

It is usually eaten, especially around Halloween, and becomes a kind of food for the occasion. In addition, dried pumpkin seeds are often used as Halloween food.
