In the UK we do very much the same as in the US. Although we tend to make less of a big deal of it, as we are getting ready for November 5th - Guy Fawkes Night. We celebrate his failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament in the 17th Century. For this children traditionally make an effigy of Guy Fawkes and take it round houses asking for a penny for the guy. The effigy is then burn on a bonfire on November 5th and it is customary to have fireworks also.

For Halloween we do the whole pumpkin thing and children go round playing Trick or Treat.

Red Nose Day is a national charity event.

Like SoftStag say we do similar stuff for Halloween, but the big thing is bonfire night. Here in India they don't really do anything. I did buy a pumpkin though the other day, although it was only about 8" in diameter! Not much good for a lantern! lol

In India there are many festivals, the Hindu's seem to have a festival every month where they decorate everything with lights, set off fireworks and generally have a good time. The main one is coming up next month - Divalli - this goes on for days! Mr. Green
