Long ago before the arrival of the Eye of Wisdom on Candara, Kolydia was ruled by tyranny.

However, on a cold winter evening, a group of assassins wearing terrifying masks killed all the cruel leaders and then vanished into the night. A few witnessed what happened and saw the assassins but nobody knew who they were, where they came from or where they went. All that is known is that they saved thousands of lives and a rumor started to spread that the assassins were sent by the gods, so the people among themselves started to call them saints.

After rumor came superstition and now the masks worn by those assassins are thought to ward off evil. That's why in winter people hang carved masks on their doors for protection.

When the Eye of Wisdom first came to Candara, the land was very underdeveloped. There was a great shortage of lumber, a farmer used a pumpkin to carve a mask like those, and when he put a candle inside, it seemed to have come to life.

When the leaders of The Eye of Wisdom heard of this, they marked this day as a day of celebration so that people could take a rest before the hard winter. everyone put on these pumpkin masks to enjoy a friendly chat and some delicious Pumpkin Dishes.

Later, some children would put on these mask and dress up as monsters then visit their neighbor's houses to ask for Candy.

First it was only a game of a few children, but over a time a custom developed and now the day is set in the calendar as the Pumpkin Festival. Children still dress as monsters as ask everyone for candy and try to scare them, and they shout: "Trick or Treat!"
