Part 3: Read the passage and answer the questions:

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on October 31. The night of 31st October was believed in the past that dead people appeared from their graves, and which is now celebrated in the US, Canada and Britain. It is a time when children have parties, and ghosts. Many children dress up as movie characters or a favorite superhero.

They make lanterns out of pumpkins (large and round vegetables) from which the inside has been removed, and play “trick or treat”, a traditional activity at Halloween, in which children dress in costumes and visit houses. At each house they say “trick or treat”. This means that they will play a ‘trick’, or joke, on the people in the house unless they are given a ‘treat’, e.g. sweets or money. Most people prefer to give treats rather than having tricks played on them. The practice of ‘trick or treat’ began in the US in the 1930s but is now comon in Britain also.
