  • Now, another big difference between the UK and the US is the house decoration now in the U.

  • S.

  • People put a lot of effort into decorating their houses, whereas in the UK, this doesn't really happen that frequently.

  • The tradition of trick or treating only really became popular in the UK in the last 10 years or so.

  • To be honest, many families are quite afraid or a bit cautious off their Children, knocking on stranger's doors for candy or sweets.

  • In fact, some people will not even open their doors to trick or treaters.

  • However, if trick or treaters are welcome, some people might decorate their front door to show that they are welcome to knock on the door on, say, trick or treat.

  • In contrast, this is a very popular tradition in the U.

  • S.

  • On.

  • Throw it like this in Scotland, it's very common for Children.

  • Thio do a performance or show a talent in return for some candy or some chocolate off sweets on.

  • What they tend to do as well in Scotland is they carve out turnips.

  • So you may have seen and heard that in the US they actually carve out pumpkins to make jack o lanterns.

  • This year, I decided to really get into the spirit of Halloween.

  • Okay, Theo, In the UK, we celebrate Guy Fawkes night or bonfire nights.

  • More on this happens on the fifth of November, which is the date in which Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the houses of Parliament and is also known as the gunpowder plot.
