Halloween, also known as All Hallows' Eve, is a celebration observed in many countries around the world. Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. The event is known for activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, and visiting haunted attractions.
In Denmark, the observance of Halloween is a relatively recent phenomenon, having gained popularity only since the late 1990s. The Danish people have embraced the occasion by incorporating their own cultural traditions and customs. One such example is the celebration of "Fastelavn" in February, which shares similarities with Halloween, including dressing up in costumes and going door-to-door for treats. Furthermore, the Danish Halloween experience is notably influenced by the country's rich history of folklore, with tales of mythical creatures like witches, trolls, and elves providing inspiration for costumes and decorations.
Halloween in Denmark takes place on October 31st, mirroring its celebration in other countries. The event is marked by various activities, such as children trick-or-treating in neighborhoods, attending themed parties, and visiting Halloween-themed amusement parks like Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. Moreover, many families indulge in pumpkin carving, leaving their intricate creations outside their homes to welcome trick-or-treaters. Although Halloween is not a public holiday in Denmark, its observance continues to grow in popularity, becoming an enjoyable annual tradition for Danes of all ages.
