The night of October 31st, also known as Halloween night, is celebrated in many countries around the world, but it is true that it is not lived with as much intensity as in the USA. In this article we tell you a bit about the American perspective of Halloween and their traditions.

So keep reading!


One of the most typical American traditions is to carve pumpkins by hand and put a candle inside, so that the atmosphere is lit orange. They do this in order to scare away spirits.


Children go from house to house trick-or-treating and ask for sweets in exchange for no pranks. Americans' favourite knick-knacks tend to be Reese’s Peanut Buttercup, Kit Kat and Butterfinger.


Wearing the scariest and most realistic costume on Halloween night is very important for Americans. They exploit their creativity to the fullest, customise their own costumes... 


This is a very typical Halloween game in the United States. It consists of filling a bathtub or a large sink with water and putting apples in it. The aim is to catch an apple with your teeth without using your hands. It can also be done with an apple hanging from a rope on a tree branch. It is interpreted as a symbol of good luck if you catch an apple.
