How Is Halloween Celebrated In Other Parts Of The World Besides The United States?
In Portugal Halloween or Dia das Bruxas is not well know or widely celebrated , however as with most things it has taken on a lot from American traditions kids in some of the areas do dress up and ask for candy. The day after is All Saints day or Finados and that is a national Holiday people will bring flowers to the graves of their loved ones.
Usually, Halloween is limited to being celebrated in gated villages and condominiums. The children live within the gated village or condo where the celebration takes place. In our village it starts out with a costume party at about 3 to 5 pm where there are prizes for different types of costumes. Then trick or treat is limited to 5 - 7 pm. A group of underprivileged children are also allowed to trick or treat within our village, but only with the permission of the Mayor (who lives in our village). I think that is a way of keeping it safe.
Also, not all houses participate on Halloween. If you want to participate, usually they put Halloween decorations on the front of the house. If there are no decorations, children won't go to your house.
Teenagers celebrate Halloween in clubs where parties are held. Sometimes they come in costume, tool
