HALLOWEEN IN ITALY

I’m often asked about Halloween in Italy.  Do they celebrate it? Well, sort of.  Do the kids dress up?  Many do in mostly sweet costumes -not many ghosts and ghoulies walking around.  Do adults dress up like the walking dead and decorate their homes with cobwebs? Not as far as I know.

Italy has its own customs though going back long before anyone ever took a knife to carve a pumpkin face, and, not surprisingly, many involve food.
