Hair is something that grows on people's heads. It is also found on the rest of your body, but it is very very fine and can be hard to see (depending on the person!). The hair that grows on animals like cats and dogs is actually called fur, and the hair on sheep is called wool. The hairy stuff on even stranger things like spiders and some plants isn't hair either, just something that can look like hair and helps to protect whatever it is growing on. Hair on your face is called a beard or moustache.
Halloween is a celebration that takes place on October 31st. On Halloween, children go trick-or-treating, collecting sweets and candy around their neighbourhood. Both adults and children like to dress up in costumes of witches and ghosts, and people also carve Jack-o-lanterns out of pumpkins for Halloween.
A hallucination is seeing something that is not there, whether it is strange colors around the edges of things or objects and people that are not there at all. People sometimes get hallucinations when they have a migraine or when they take drugs.
A hallucination is not the same as a mirage.
