The obvious Halloween post!
Here in Portugal we don't have an Halloween tradition as in the United States or even England, but the idea has been imported and there are some cool parties in Lisbon where we can celebrate the creepy holiday. Trick or Treating isn't much of a thing here, probably they wouldn't know what you are talking about ahah.
On the other hand, we do have on the 1st, something we call Pão por Deus or in enlgish something like "Bread for God". In this tradition kids gather in small groups and go door to door saying Pão por Deus and the people give them anything, bread, nuts, something else to eat and most of the time a small amount of money. I used to do this when I was younger and absolutely loved it! By the end of the day you would have some money to buy candy and go to the local cinema to celebrate.
Good Halloween everyone!
