I was out buying my annual Halloween candy today... and I always have such a hard time finding the PERFECT candies. After all, I want to be the most POPULAR candy giver in the neighborhood! It got me to thinking: how does everyone else around the world celebrate Halloween? It's HUGE here in the United States. I read a statistic that was staggering! Over 21 million dollars is spent on Halloween candy every year! Halloween is the holiday with the 3rd largest number of parties annually next to Christmas and New Year's Eve. So come on, enlighten me, how do YOU celebrate Halloween?


  1. The perfect candy for Halloween is one that is hard and is easy to throw. With a good aim and a fair aim it is easy to hit a few trick or treat beggers!!!!

  2. Halloween is not a big thing in Sweden. Usually some nightclubs have parties and let people in for free if they have a costume. The whole trick or treat thing hardly exists here.

    But, we do light a candle by the grave of loved ones, so the cemeterys look really cool with all the lights. :)

  3. I never knew that Magnus, that sounds very cool :) (respectfully)

    It is not as big in the uk as it is in the US but we do celebrate Guy Fawkes Night on the 5th
