How 15 Countries in the World Celebrate Halloween

We’ve all watched Hollywood films and shows, they all do the same thing during Halloween: Go trick or treating, hang out with friends, and maybe get killed by a homicidal maniac with mommy issues. That kind of tradition doesn’t hold a candle to how other countries celebrate Halloween. It’s festive, it’s colorful, it’s full of food! Sometimes maybe even a bit weird for other cultures! Check out these 15 countries that celebrate Halloween differently and interestingly.

1. China

China celebrates Teng Chieh, of Festival of the Hungry Ghosts. It’s similar to what is celebrated in Hong Kong, but the difference is that people from the mainland serve food and water in front of the portraits of deceased family members.
