The Halloween story focuses on the eve of All Saints, which occurs to be celebrated on October 31st and has Celtic and Roman roots at the same time. The Anglo-Saxon culture used to celebrate a magical and terrifying night to honor and keep the spirits away from the living, since they thought that was the night all the deceased came out of their graves. As a part of the celebration, they offered food and treats to the dead ones, trying to bribe them to spare their lives. That’s where the ‘trick or treat’ tradition comes from.
Despite being a typical American party and never forgetting that Catalonia has its own traditional Halloween day called la Castanyada, in Barcelona there are many Halloween celebrations, especially on the numerous amusement parks that exist in the city and its surroundings. Many of these amusement parks offer to their visitors shows, promotions, parties and all kinds of events. There even exist amusement parks specifically dedicated to horror.
