Halloween in Spain?

I've probably said it a million times before, but we don't really celebrate Halloween in Spain, at least not yet!

I remember when I was a kid Xmas was just the day we celebrated the birth of Christ and we got our presents on the 6th of January, Ephiphay. But now we get Santa AND the Three Wise men, and our Xmas is now fully Americanized!

And I'm pretty sure the same will happen to Halloween too! Each year more people have a party where they dress up on Halloween, and horror movie marathons are becoming more common. Not only can you see every mall full of costumes, but they have trick or treat baskets too!

This last part is the one which will probably take a lot more time to get into our tradition, because most kids don't know they have to dress up and most people don't know they have to give out candy...

I've heard in bigger communities trick or treated is having a bigger success, but small town just don't get it...

The market downstairs has pumpkins for sale, something they only have in Halloween, but nobody here has a porch to put a Jack O' Lantern on... Another sign of how we are trying to have Halloween without really getting it.

As for me, I have Candy Corn, Fruit Rolls up, Pixy Stix and Root Beer, it's not a holiday so I won't have a day off, but I'm hoping to have enough time to watch at least ONE horror movie, and I'll bring candy just in case I get trick or treaters...

I'm very curious to see how  Halloween will turn out tomorrow over here! :3

it's all part of our sinister plan to make all of humanity american. we blend other cultures into our own it's only fair that other cultures blend ours into theirs.

In NYC, Halloween was pretty much celebrated over the weekend. I mean with it falling in the middle of the week, most folks aren't going to make a big deal of it. It was like that last year too...

I'll be home Wednesday night and if any children buzz my door they'll get nothing and if they egg the door or do anything, well trust me.. they won't, they know I'll actually do the same back to them and at 3 in the morning.
