Halloween- A popular festival in Western Countries
Halloween is a popular holiday celebrated on October 31st, primarily in Western countries.
It originated from ancient Celtic traditions and has evolved over time. During Halloween, people often dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and decorate their homes with spooky themes.
It’s a time for fun and creativity, with activities like pumpkin carving and haunted house visits.
While it may not be widely celebrated in all parts of the world, Halloween has become a global phenomenon, with people embracing the spirit of the holiday and enjoying the festivities.
But this year amid humanitarian crises we have seen that the West too is keeping their festivities at minimal scale.
Muslims who should be grieving for the ongoing crisis kept a blind eye and keeping the festival alive and ongoing.
