Happy Halloween from BRIC Language

Halloween or Hallowe’en, also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a yearly celebration observed primarily in regions of the Western world on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.

The Chinese have several holidays that are similar to Halloween, such as the “Hungry Ghost Festival”, Zhongyuan Festival (中元节) in mid-July, when it is customary to float river lanterns to remember those who have died.

Mexico has El Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. In Brazil, the holiday is called Dia das Bruxas, and it has been gaining popularity in the recent years.
