By the Gregorian Calendar, tomorrow is Hallowmas, or All Hallows’ Day, or any of a few other days. Since that’s tomorrow, today is All Hallows’ Eve. Therefore: candy. Candy and costumes and stuff.
This also coincides with the Day of the Dead, which is not a coincidence. The Day of the Dead was moved so it would take place at the same time.
I’m told that by Celtic reckoning this is the end of fall, and thus the eve of winter. That means that from sundown today to sundown tomorrow is Samhain.
