Halloween is celebrated on October 31 overnight into November 1. In English-speaking countries and in Europe this holiday is rooted in the traditions of the ancient Celts. In this tradition, it is the night before The Feast of All Saints. But in Russia this holiday – only a small part of its features – have been adopted essentially by young people, primarily as another occasion to have fun and let their imaginations run wild. There are no children in costumes, going from house to house and asking for treats. The whole celebration boils down to this: all nightclubs throw large-scale parties with people dressed up in monster costumes, with rock-music concerts (heavy metal and death metal are especially welcome) and with “bloody” menus.
