Halloween In Malaysia

 

 

In the U.S. everyone expects Halloween on October 31. Even if one doesn't celebrate the holiday, it's still a holiday observed by most.

In some countries, Malaysia for one, Halloween isn't even observed. But this year, Malaysians are going to enjoy Halloween festivities. Candy and costumes are being made available for sale through local stores.

Malaysians won't celebrate Halloween for the same reason Americans or other countries do. For Malaysians the festivities are sort of an appetizer for the Christmas holiday coming in December. It serves as an introduction to getting natives in the mood for holiday celebrations!
