Halloween — noun:  the evening  of October 31; the eve of All Saints’ Day; Allhallows Eve:  observed especially by children in costumes who solicit treats, often by threatening minor pranks.

The word Halloween was first used in the 16th century and represents a Scottish variant of the fuller All Hallows’ Even (‘evening’), that is, the night before All Hallows’ Day. Although the phrase All Hallows’ is found in Old English (ealra hālgena mæssedæg, mass-day of all saints), All Hallows’ Even is itself not seen until 1556.
