In 2016, the Burger King restaurant branch in New York City celebrated the Halloween by covering its store with a white blanket to look like a gh0st, and spray-painted “McDonald’s” on it. It also had a sign on it saying, “Boooo! Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween!”

Many people found it hilarious; saying that Burger King had actually “won” because of its Halloween store dress up; sharing photos of the store on social media.

The tradition of Halloween, a holiday celebrated every year on October 31, originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Here, people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off gh0sts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Later on, the All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. Thus, the evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, which later became Halloween.

Over time, Halloween has evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes, and eating treats. Aside from people dressing up for this holiday, houses and establishments are also decorated with things.
