Pessoal,

A. Leiam o texto abaixo. / Read the text below.

Halloween is a holiday in some English-speaking countries which is celebrated on the night of October 31st. In the USA, as well as in other countries, children wear costumes and go to people's homes saying "Trick or treat!" to ask for candy, which is called sweets in the United Kingdom; that way, people traditionally give it to them. This practice originally involved a threat. A threat is when someone says that they will do something bad to you if they do not get what they want. In this case, the threat could be explained as: "Give me a treat or I will play a trick on you." Children today usually do not play tricks if they do not get treats. However, some children still get up to mischief (pranks or things to make fun of people; like putting toilet paper in trees; writing on windows with soap or throwing eggs at people's houses). People sometimes dress up as ghosts, witches, goblins and other scary things for Halloween. In Brazil, this day is often celebrated in schools or tv programs for children. - Wikipedia adaptado
