The Ghostly Origins of Halloween in Denmark

Before diving into the modern side of Danish Halloween celebrations, it's important to understand the rich historical backdrop. In Denmark, Halloween owes much of its celebration to the Samhain festival. Originally an ancient Celtic tradition that marked the transition from harvest to winter, Samhain was believed to be the time when spirits walked the Earth. Today the pagan name, Samhain, was replaced with the Christian term 'All Hallow Even,' which eventually evolved into the familiar word we use today: Halloween.

While All Saints Day isn't a tradition in Denmark due to the Lutheran Church, children have traditionally dressed up and received sweets in February during Fastelavn. "Trick or treat" is translated as "slik eller trylleri, ellers er dit liv forbi" or simply "slik eller ballade!" on Danish doorsteps on October 31st. As Halloween becomes popular, more people today buy fancy dress costumes for Halloween than for Fastelavn.
