Belgium: Ghosts and saintly soirées
Some Belgium villages go all out for Halloween, while others roll out the red carpet for All Saints’ Day. On the night of Halloween, they’ll light a candle and share a spooky story of a departed relative. Belgians love a good blend of chilling tales and heart-warming traditions.

Mexico’s celebration is a dazzling blend of vibrant colours, marigolds (also known as the flower of the dead), and sugar skulls. Families gather to honour their dearly departed with feasts, lively parades, and heartfelt altars.

Halloween auf Deutsch kicks off mid-October, painting the town with a spook-tacular display of decorations. It’s the season where every party is a Halloween bash! On 11th November they keep the spooky spirit alive with Matinstag, complete with a lantern procession and a parade of costumes.
