Halloween, the traditional spooky day of costumes, fright and eating candy is starting to catch on here in Italy. Throughout Italy you will often see carved pumpkins, costumed kids running through the piazzas and signs for Halloween themed parties at local restaurants or clubs. In some areas you’ll even find Halloween tours of medieval towers, castles and creepy catacombs lined with mummies and bones. Celebrations are now widespread enough that it’s appropriate to say that Halloween has been adopted into the Italian culture.
Halloween, or All Hallows’ Eve, was just the beginning of the celebrations of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. While these are still the main holidays recognized in Italy, Halloween is certainly gaining in popularity. For many Italians, the origin of Halloween matters less than the chance to celebrate another fiesta. Much like in America, children here in Italy enjoy dressing up and walking from store to store through town asking, “Trick or treat?” The wonderful chocolates, candies and traditional treats they take home might just make you want to dress up and join in the fun!
