Halloween is based on the ancient Celtic holiday 'All Hallows Eve', that marked the only day of the year when dead spirits were allowed to walk the earth.
Most celebrated in the US, Halloween has now spread its influence mainly as a commercialised event in many countries that did not celebrate it ten years ago, Bulgaria included.
The tradition of carving pumpkin lanterns on Halloween comes from the legend of the drunk Jack who tricked Satan into letting his soul alone when he died, only to find out that the Heavens didn't want him either. After a lot of pleading with the devil the trickster received a burning ember to light his eternal wanderings in the darkness. Jack carried the ember in a hollow pumpkin, nowadays represented by the Jack-o-Lantern.
