Default What countries do not celebrate Halloween?

In UK, we do celebrate Halloween, well.. Mainly youngsters go trick or treating whilst adults have proper costume parties or do not celebrate.

Ermm.. In Lithuania, there isn't such thing as Halloween, but more like All Hallows Eve, where people visit their parents or relatives graveyards. Some people have costume parties to follow the American way, but it's not recognised.

Yeah we don't celebrate Halloween but you forgot to write we have something like Halloween in February :wink:
Yes but its not scary or spooky or just creative. Little girls dress up like Cinderella, little boys like Zoro, women like sexy nurse and men like the guy from the movie Scream. Its far too pathetic and boring for me now...

I'm from croatia and we don't celebrate it either,i think because we have a similar holliday that's almost a month long,it's in february and march...it's something we call 'maškare' we too dress up and go trick or treating,but only on the last day...but all time during that almost month long celebration,we have parades and 'karneval' something like they have in rio...it all ends on the last day by burning a wicker man that we here call 'fašnik'

so,halloween is rather new here and mostly younger people know about it,we do however have masked parties at clubs,horror marathons on tv and in the movies and stuff like that on halloween...but no,we don't go trick or treating on that day...especially since the day after halloween we celebrate the day of the dead or all saints day...then we traditionally go to church,then the graveyard,and light candles in our windows....it's a very peacefull and sad,but also beautyfull tradition here...

We also generally don't celebrate halloween in Poland. There're halloween parties in some clubs or pubs for last about 3 years but it's rather one more ocassion to have fun than celebrating like in US.
We had our own version of halloween :wink: (christian and pagan faith mixed together) but it's not more celebrated, for about 2 centuries i think (or even more)
