  Halloween或者Hallowe'en(万圣节之夜)是一年中最“闹鬼”的一夜,这个“鬼节”如今已经成为一个国际性的庆祝节日。万圣节在西方国家非常流行,尤其是在United States, Canada, Ireland, Puerto Rico, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and occasionally in parts of Australia。近几年来,中国的许多城市也开始流行过万圣节,而且万圣节的节日气氛在中国网络虚拟世界上体现得更为明显,比如《魔兽世界》的虚拟世界上早半个月就洋溢着节日的气息,商家不仅推出了N款好玩的应景道具,你还可以品尝可口的苹果。

  Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies.

  万圣节的庆祝活动有:

  trick-or-treating不请吃就捣乱:
  Today jack-o'-lanterns in the windows of a house on Halloween night let costumed children know that there are goodies(糖果)waiting if they knock and say "Trick or Treat!". 万圣节之夜,打扮成小鬼的孩子们提着南瓜灯站在别人家的门口,他们知道只要敲门说 "Trick or Treat!",就可以得到好吃的糖果。

  ghost tours鬼节游行:
  有的是坐在一个大巴士上环城拜访鬼经常出没的地方,有的是由一名向导带领一组游人走街串巷,一边听着那些鬼故事,一边亲临那些故事“真实”的现场,连坟地也不放过。

  bonfires点篝火:
  A bonfire is a large campfire. It is just a bunch of wood you collect from natural surroundings and put into a pile and then you light it on fire. And ideally you have more wood and you keep throwing it on and on, making the flames bigger and bigger and then it burns out. Bonfire 就是篝火,只不过比普通的篝火要大。点这种篝火要准备很多木头,然后不断地往火里扔,火越旺越好玩the bigger, the better。

  costume parties化妆舞会:
  More and more adults celebrate Halloween. They dress up like historical or political figures and go to costume parties. In larger cities, costumed children and their parents gather at shopping malls early in the evening. Stores and businesses give parties with games and treats for the children.Teenagers enjoy costume dances at their schools and the more outrageous the costume the better! 大人小孩齐化妆,样子越恐怖,造型越鬼怪越好。

  carving jack-o'-lanterns 做南瓜灯:
  The first step in carving a good jack-o'-lantern is selecting a good pumpkin. The shape of the pumpkin should match the shape of the design you have in mind. Your pumpkin should sit on a flat surface without rolling over. Its skin should be free from cuts or abrasions, and its stem should be about two inches (five centimeters) long. Before purchasing a pumpkin, tug the stem firmly and press the area around it with your finger. If the pumpkin is soft or if the stem pulls free, it has started to rot, and you should choose another one. Once you get your pumpkin home, use a damp cloth to remove any dirt from the surface, and pat the pumpkin dry.
