Pumpkins October is a great month for Italian festivals, especially food festivals and wine harvest celebrations.

But what about Halloween? Well, Halloween is not a big celebration in Italy and does not belong to the Italian tradition, but it is becoming more popular especially in the larger cities.

Halloween in Italy is All Saint’s Eve. All Saints Day on November 1st and All Souls Day on November 2nd, are still the main Autumn holidays in Italy.

All Saints’ Day was instituted to honor all the saints, known and unknown.
All Soul’s Day (or the “Day of the Dead”) is a Roman Catholic day of remembrance for friends and loved ones who have passed away.
