How are you celebrating Halloween?

It's Halloween on Monday and we want to know how you're celebrating the spook-tacular event.

It's the time of year for scary costumes, ghoulish parties, and eating sweets after trick or treating.

Halloween can be traced back to a Celtic festival called Samhain, originally a way to scare away ghosts and ghouls that might come to Earth.

It was believed the barrier between our world and the spirit world was at its thinnest.

The festival survives to this day and we asked you how you're celebrating Halloween.
