Dear Vardaki, here:
 
It īs accurate enough. You īll find more, if you google Halloween. And, as Eng78 suggested, if you search this site for this  Halloween contents, you īll find some awesome stuff (60 pages, just to mention the printables!).
Have a good day.
 
(there are no silly questions, dear Vardaki; not so sure about answers LOL)
Best regards.

I understood that it is a celebration as carnival or the Christmas. What is celebrated in what religion?

No, dear Vardaki, nothing to do with Xmas. It īs a pagan festival. It was blended into religions, that īs what most religions did with pagan rituals.
 
For instance:  in Portugal we have Bread for God īs mercy! See? The old pagan ritual was blended into Catholicism. Children knock at doors and say: Bread for God īs mercy! and we offer: money, cakes, fruit, whatever...
 
It īs not as funny as Halloween, though. Check Halloween at  teacherīs Youtube. You īll find some good trailers.
