Symbols of Halloween:
Jack-O-lanterns were traditionally carried by people dressed up on Halloween to frighten the evil spirits. There is a popular Irish Christian folktale associated with the jack-o-lantern, which in lore is said to represent a soul who has been denied entry into both heaven and hell.
Trick refers to "threat" to perform mischief on the homeowners on their property if no treat is given.
More pictures of how people celebrate Halloween. These pictures were taken in Huntington Beach on a Worldwide Photo Walk.

Located just east of the Rialto City limits are the concrete Tee Pees of the classic Wig Wam Motel. This icon has come under the care of a couple who are dedicated to preservation. The couple has renovated the Wigwams and there are two motels on Route 66, similar to this one and the motel is the last of the chain built and are a testament to the re-emergence of Route 66.
