All Saints' Day万圣节
One story about Jack，an Irishman，who was not allowed into Heaven because he was stingy with his money.
So he was sent to hell. But down there he played tricks on the Devil (Satan)， so he was kicked out of Hell and made to walk the earth forever carrying a lantern.
Well，Irish children made Jack's lanterns on October 31st from a large potato or turnip， hollowed out with the sides having holes and lit by little candles inside.
And Irish children would carry them as they went from house to house begging for food for the village Halloween festival that honored the Druid god Muck Olla.
The Irish name for these lanterns was "Jack with the lantern" or "Jack of the lantern，" abbreviated as " Jack-o'-lantern" and now spelled "jack-o-lantern."The traditional Halloween you can read about in most books was just children's fun night.
Halloween celebrations would start in October in every elementary school.
I Don’t Want to Walk Home我不想走回家
Tom is a very old man. After dinner, he likes walking in the street. And he goes to bed at seven o’clock.
But tonight, a car stopped at his house. A policeman helps him get out. He tells Tom’s wife, “The old man couldn’t find his way in the street. He asked me to take him in the car.”
After the policeman leaves there, his wife asks, “Tom, you go to the street every night.But tonight you can’t find the way, what’s the matter?”
The old man smiles like a child and says, “I couldn’t find my way? I didn’t want to walk home.”
Sun the Ice晒冰
Once, a simpleton’s wife told him to buy some ice.
Two hours later, he didn’t come back.
She wanted to know why he didn’t come back and went out to have a look. She saw he was standing in the sun at the gate and watching the ice melting.
“What’s the matter?” She asked him. “Why don’t you bring it in?”
“I saw the ice was wet and I was afraid that you would scold me so I’m running it dry.” The simpleton answered.
