It's 31st October. It means.....
Have you seen Google's page?! COOL!!!
The word Halloween is first attested in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All-Hallows-Even ("evening"), that is, the night before All Hallows Day. Up through the early 20th century, the spelling "Hallowe'en" was frequently used, eliding the "v" and shortening the word. Although the phrase All Hallows is found in Old English (ealra hālgena mæssedæg, mass-day of all saints), All-Hallows-Even is itself not attested until 1556.

So basically, it's a feast for the dead. Ah, which reminds me. All saints' day is on the 1st of November. Halloween is like Hallow's Eve. Hallow here means ghost, so means that Halloween is the eve where the ghost roams the earth. From what I understand la~
I still remember when I was young, my parents went to the cemetery along with all the other parishioners to lit the candle on every grave, in remembrance, on 1st November every year. When we went on our ritual evening/late night drive the whole Catholic cemetery looks eerie/beautiful bask in the candle light glow. :)
Later all~ I need to study my database. -___-
*Listening to Michael Jackson's Thriller*
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
