And to remove fear from these evil spirits, these people wear the same clothes as them. Apart from this, the bonfire (fire) is burnt and the bones of dead animals are thrown into it.

It is also known as “All Sats Day”, which is celebrated on November 1, which was created by the Christian people for the conversion of idolaters. On this day idols are worshiped. The evening of Hallows precedes “All Sats Day”, now known as Halloween. But some Pops tried to mix it with another Christian and the result was that “All Sets Day” and Halloween Day are celebrated on one day.
