In the XIX century, a huge number of Irish people emigrated to the New World, bringing with them the traditions of Halloween.
Halloween is celebrated on a large scale in the USA and Canada, where it is very popular. In the United States, Halloween is a holiday when the greatest amount of candies is sold, and it takes the second place, after Christmas, in pre-holiday sales. It even has its capitals - Los Angeles and New York, where the most vivid and colorful festivals and carnivals take place on this day.
