Halloween 2010 Date USA: When Is It?

When is Halloween 2010 in the USA? What is the date?
I wasn't born in the USA, I'm from Spain and I see that everyone is talking about Halloween, pumpkins and costumes. I know Halloween is celebrated this weekend but is it on Saturday or Sunday?
What is the official date of Halloween 2010?

Halloween 2010 is celebrated on Sunday October 31, 2010 in the USA.
It is celebrated every year on the same day, the last day of October.
Halloween is a mix of ancient Celtic practices, Catholic and Roman religious rituals and European folk traditions that blended together over time to create the holiday we know today.

Part of the history of Halloween is Halloween costumes. The practice of dressing up in costumes and begging door to door for treats on holidays goes back to the Middle Ages, and includes Christmas wassailing.

Halloween is a time that reconfirms the social bond of a neighborhood (particularly the bond between strangers of different generations) by a ritual act of trade. Children go to lengths to dress up and overcome their fear of strangers in exchange for candy.

The custom of Halloween was brought to America in the 1840's by Irish immigrants fleeing their country's potato famine.
