    UNIT2

    Let's Dress Up——It's Halloween

    From early childhood getting

    dressed up is connected with

    a special pastime in North America,

    called Halloween. Halloween is

    celebrated on the last

    night of October, when the air

    is crisp and snow is

    not far off. Every young

    child is acquainted with

    this exciting tradition.

    On the last day

    of October when dinner is finished,

    children hurry to

    dress up in a costume.

    Darkness comes early at this time

    of year and caution

    must be practiced, foremost

    by the children who are

    going from house to house,

    “trick or treat”.

    Parents warn their children

    not to dart out

    in front of cars.

    In all the excitement

    it is easy for children to

    become distracted and ignore safety rules.

    Planning what your costume

    will be, ahead of time,

    is part of the

    fun of the evening.

    Many mothers will spend time

    fabricating outfits for

    their little girls who suddenly

    turn into circus clowns,

    beautiful ballet dancers or

    weird colorful bugs. Fathers may

    help their sons construct

    a costume of foil armor.

    Little boys often enjoy pretending

    they are in the army so

    on Halloween it is possible

    to see squads of lieutenants

    and sergeants marching along

    in the dark. We affiliate

    this celebration with the supernatural

    so some children may choose

    to wear a skeleton costume

    bearing a skull and crossbones,

    or even a monster costume.

    The choice of wardrobe

    for the evening is really limitless.

    Witches can be seen

    riding on broomsticks across well

    illuminated intersections. Earlier

    in the evening they may

    have concocted a witch's brew

    to quench their thirst

    for their arrival home.

    Ghosts can be heard groaning

    and moaning while they

    glide along city streets.

    Beautiful butterflies flutter by

    on their way to a party.

    Pirates carrying swords and pistols

    roam about, patches over one eye.

    Small aliens search for

    a new home here on Earth.

    Wearing a cape and mask

    allows a child to become Superman

    for a few hours and

    enter the world of fantasy.

    An ethnic flavor is introduced

    as a band of gypsies dance

    along under a bright full moon.

    Of course you can always

    see a certain number of

    Native American costumes,

    the buckskin jackets and dresses

    decorated with fringe and beads.

    Some youngsters choose to

    decorate only their faces with grease

    paint instead of wearing masks.

    In many ways this is

    safer for a child,

    making visibility clearer.

    At the same time

    a mask allows them to

    remain anonymous to all

    but their closest friends.

    Usually, on the night

    before Halloween, family members

    gather together to carve a pumpkin.

    On Halloween night the candle lit

    face of the pumpkin shines

    from each home welcoming the little

    ghosts and goblins to call.

    Parents usually escort small children

    around their own neighborhood

    helping to keep them safe.

    Small children only visit random houses,

    their parent's friends mostly, while

    older children knock at every door.

    Crowding onto the front porch

    of the house the children rap at

    the door and chant

    the refrain “trick or treat”.

    Householders distribute candies, apples,

    peanuts, or any edible treat

    into decorated wooden six quart baskets,

    or plastic bags. They may

    be asked to recite a poem

    or sing a song

    before receiving their treat.

    Some lucky children may receive

    cookies from a freshly baked

    batch of chocolate chip cookies.

    On arriving home the children

    will dump all the junk candy

    out onto the floor

    to examine their loot.

    Usually there is a great racket

    as brothers and sisters compare

    what goodies they have collected.

    Adults, too, like to

    join in Halloween celebrations

    by attending small house parties

    or large group gatherings

    at halls or arenas.

    They may play the old traditional games

    such as bobbing for apples,

    which float in tubs of water,

    telling ghost stories and

    visiting a haunted house.

    Everyone seems to get enjoyment

    from being slightly afraid.

    If you live in the country

    the hooting of an owl or

    even the howl of a wolf

    underlines the spooky atmosphere

    of Halloween evening. Clouds scuttle

    across the face of the moon

    and the flap of

    a bird's wings can be heard

    as it settles on

    the bare branches of a tree.

    Eyes gleam in the night as

    a black cat crosses your path.

    Bats swoop about in the dark

    startling those who are nervous.

    On this evening it is

    not necessary to be extravagant

    to have a good time.

    A little imagination and

    a sense of fun will create

    a memory of Halloween

    night for many years.
