Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain and Halloween is therefore celebrated a lot in Ireland. (We brought it with us when large numbers of us emigrated to the USA in the 19th and 20th centuries.) It is an important holiday for Irish children!
In Ireland, we dress up, go trick-or-treating at our neighbour’s doors, play games, tell scary stories, and gather around bonfires. So here in Sweden, we like to share with you how we do it! We arrange a children's party at the end of October/early November, and occasionally an event for adults too.
