Halloween 2023


Halloween occurs on 31 October and has its origins in the Irish and Anglo-Saxon "All Hallow's Eve", the evening before All Saints' Day. It was a Celtic autumn festival marking harvest time where fires were lit to guide the dead and scare away witches. From this, a tradition of visiting graves and lighting candles emerged. The difference between Halloween and All Saints' Day is that Halloween is a joyous holiday filled with pranks and celebration, while All Saints' Day is a contemplative rite of remembrance. Halloween is mainly associated with dressing up in spooky costumes and children going door-to-door trick or treating. The latter tradition originates from England.

We at Fristaden would like to wish everyone a pleasant and peaceful Halloween!
