Halloween, Florence 2007
Originated in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, the Celts celebrated the Druidic fire festival called 'Samhain'. 'Samhain' celebrated the feast of the dead in Pagan and Christian times or the close of harvest . Today it has become a commercialized holiday with costumes, candy, harvest and ghoul-like decorations. This is especially true in the United States and some parts of Europe.
Today in Italy Halloween or All Saints Day is becoming more and more popular, especially in the cities. So get your costumes ready because you will find plenty to do on Old Hallow's Eve in and around Florence.
Halloween is on a Wednesday this year and on the Fall break of most study abroad programs. Think of it as the ultimate spring break but with costumes! Many private bars and discos host special events on Halloween night. During the day there are festivals and cultural events taken place around Florence.
