As Halloween approaches, experts have looked into how different nations across the world celebrate the annual festival.

The team at Busuu have researched what October 31st means for other countries and cultures to see if they’ve embraced the American tradition. 

For places like France, Spain and Poland, All Saints’ Day takes priority, which falls on November 1st.

For this bank holiday families get together and visit the cemetery to pay respects to those who have passed.

Similarly in Mexico, families get together on El Día de Muertos (the Day of the Dead) to light candles around pictures of late family members and cook their favourite foods to celebrate their lives.

Other countries, including Germany, Japan and China have fully embraced elements of Halloween from the American tradition.
