As not all people celebrate such a holiday and not all of them appreciate such a celebration, the following conclusions were made. Those families, who do not celebrate Halloween, they switch off the lights in their houses for about two or three hours in the evening. Those who celebrate the holiday but do not like evil creatures may dress up in any costume of an animal or any other nice item.
