Today we celebrate Halloween! Ja, Halloween, the festival for kids– they dress up with funny costumes, making fun of each other. Maybe they are going to play “trick-or-treat”. I am not sure that “trick-or-treat” is played here in Germany, I am sure that kids will have a great time this evening.
Halloween in Chinese is “万圣节之夜”(wàn shèng jié zhī yè), a direct translation of Halloween, The eve of All Saints’Day.
In Chinese, ghost is called 鬼 （guǐ ）. Halloween in Chinese is also called 鬼节（guǐ jié ).
The most common object of Halloween, the pumpkin, is called 南瓜（nán guā ).
