Halloween is a day celebrated with lots of trick-or-treating, costumes and pumpkin carving in America and other Western countries, but the spooky and sugary holiday is just starting to gain popularity in Slovakia.
So, how does a fun-loving American and her family celebrate Halloween in Slovakia? With a strobe light dance party, indoor trick-or-treating and some pumpkin carving of course!
Experience a multicultural Halloween by proxy with American Tarney Sjoberg Varney, who lives in Dunajská Lužná with her family, on this week’s episode of Spectacular Slovakia. For her, Halloween is less about the spook and more about forging connections with her welcoming Slovak neighbours.
So, put down the broomsticks and share some candy with your international friends instead! It’s time to celebrate Halloween!
