In Russia there is no of such holiday. I don't understand of its sense(meaning). I only know that this is a carnival(celebration) and that to an emply a pumpkin put the candle. they put a candle in an empty pumpkin.

Good work.

If you are interested, Halloween is mostly an event for children.  Pumpkins are emptied of seeds, and then carved with various faces, mostly frightening ones.  They are then displayed in widows or on porches.  At night, children dress up in scary costumes--witches, warlocks, skeletons, devils, or politicians' masks, and go door to door in their neighborhoods collecting candy from neighbors. 

The custom is very old--it comes from the UK originally, as a celebration of the dead and departed souls--kind of like Day of the Dead in Spanish/Latin American countries.

I think Wilhelm might dress up as a prince, but Gunnar as a ghoul.

Я представлял себе тетю, чтобы быть привлекательным и крепкий! Может быть, на Halloweeen, она становится ведьмой.

In Russia there is no of such tradition. I don't understand the sense of it. I only know that this is a festival and that a candle is put inside a hollowed out pumpkin.

The 1st of November is All Saints Day and it is believed that on the night before (31st October) Halloween the powers of darkness cause many more problems than usual. That is why the children dress up as ghosts and witches etc. to represent this evening of mischief.
