American Popular Culture. Halloween When September ends and October begins, there is one thing on everybody's mind: «Halloween ». Halloween is around 2,000 years old and first originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain; The Celts had rituals to avoid ghosts coming to haunt them, including dressing up in terrifying costumes to scare the ghosts and get together to party on the evening of October 31st. Nowadays, Halloween is one of the biggest holidays along with Christmas. From the beginning of October, people decorate their whole house in the colors of Halloween, wear entertaining costumes and, you can hear disguised children go from door to door to ask for treats as they shout "Trick or treat !".
Halloween is the time of year that most people loved the idea of being scared beyond belief. But nowadays it’s harder to be genuinely scared because it seems like some people have become accustomed to most horrifying things that relate to Halloween due to the fact that it is the same every year. Nonetheless every year amusement parks use Halloween as a marketing scheme to get people and their friends to come to their horror nights, and spend money on ridiculous overpriced items, which all present the same things; clowns, clowns, chainsaws, and more clowns. Yes we can all agree that clowns are scary, but there has to come a time where the ones coming up with these “horror nights” step back and realize that what they are doing is no longer working anymore. But alas there is someone out there who knows what they’re doing, and it quite possibly could have to do with the fact that they are connected to the movie studio that did invent the horror film genre.
Halloween is the time of the year when people dress up and have fun scaring people. Christmas is the time of the year full of joy and happiness.

There are two different sides, the people who think it’s a Halloween movie and the people who think it's a Christmas movie. I personally feel and believe that The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Christmas movie.
Death is not celebrated or embraced in this Halloween tradition, but rather it is used as a thrill, something to make life more exciting. As a child, I remember vividly the Haunted houses that the schools put up, and going to Knott’s Scary Farm. A menagerie of dismembered bodies and monsters which would hide and jump out at you in an attempt to frighten you and get that adrenaline flowing. When examining this ritual of Halloween, it is apparent how far Halloween has changed, not just from Samhain and All Saints Day, but from the 1950’s. The main theme of 1950’s Halloween, was one of fun and enjoyment.

Except for just one thing. It was in the garden, a designer gravestone, right at the back, no one knew who’s it was. I always got shivers whenever I was too close, but didn’t take much notice of it. I just thought that people in school were talking about that, when they said my house was creepy and the only reason I got scared was because I listened to them. Halloween was coming up, it was all over school.
He knew about this place. His friend Mark told him some stories, and how he refused to deliver papers there. Jesse was less than thrilled at the thought of going to the “spooky” house. But he knew WayWay would only cause a scene. “OK WayWay let's make it our last Halloween trick or treat house OK?” Jesse took Waylon by the hand, and led him across the street.
What is the true purpose as to why we celebrate Halloween in the western world? Why does Halloween have such a huge impact on our society altogether?
