    Trick or treating in Spain

    All Saint's day has always been a holiday in Spain, but it's usually been celebrated within the family. The tradition is to to go back to your hometown and visit the tombs of the deceased persons, lay fresh flowers, and pray a bit. That's it. No pumpkins, no witches, no reruns of ET.
    I'm spending a few days in my hometown of Úbeda, and I was surprised to see some kids disguised as witches, with plastic bags, and requesting candies on the street to passersby. It's just a meme, I guess. Next year people will start to grow pumpkins. And wait a few years, and we'll have Thanksgiving and the Superbowl.

    Everything is imported. Even ourselves. I have no problem with that.

    Importing holidays is OK, but I can't help the feeling that it's a plot by the pumpkin producers to boost sales.

    Hi there, not been to Granada yet but I expect I will be doing more travelling in Spain during the next couple of years.
    It was explained to me by my catalan girlfrined that the trick or treating thing is only just starting to gain groun in this country. Been here 3 years now and still getting used to all the new things.
    Were you ever in Catalumya?

    Yep, been en Barcelona and around it several times. Nice city.

    It is so bad that superstitious and bad rituals are entering in the culture of our society and we are accepting that rituals. I want to share with you. The experience which you have faced at the eve of Saint’s Day is just another good example of it.
