Halloween in Spain isn't like Halloween in America, unfortunately. :(

Ok, we are changing the traditions and ideas, and every year, more shops sell halloween stuff, but only simple things, like brooms, witch hats, masks or plastic pumpkins, but any more...

People doesn't decorate their houses, but young people usually do halloween parties at home, where we tell scary stories while we hear some halloween music.
You can also go to the disco with your costume, but I think that isn't the "halloween atmosphere"...

Welcome Espana!

Excuse my ignorance, but does Spain celebrate a Dia de los Muertos like Mexico does? In Colorado, with it's large ethnic population we get to enjoy Mexican cultural influences as well as traditional Halloween, and the two are being celebrated as one more that ever. I love to experience other cultures history and traditions, it just enriches everything.

Bienvenido!

Thanks to all of you! :)

Oh, no... here we have the 31st October, and we celebrate a bit (young people in general) halloween, and the 1st November, people (old or religious, in general) usually goes to the cemeteries to clean the tombs and put flowers. It's incredible the quantity of plastic flowers that is sold in these days...

Ok, I'll live in Spain this year if you live in Dallas this year. Not on Halloween though! I'd love to go to some great Metal fests there. Welcome to the forum. Hope to see you later.
