ICYMI: 6 Stunning Halloween Parties that Thrilled the Metro
November 04, 2022
What makes the spooky season special in a predominantly Catholic country? And how did Halloween become culturally mainstream in the Philippines?
Halloween is one of the most celebrated seasons that Filipinos look forward to every year. While Filipinos are traditionally known for being family-oriented and spiritual, Halloween is one of those times when Filipinos reconnect with family and friends and even visit departed loved ones at the cemetery during All Saints Day and All Souls Day for example, which is something that makes the Halloween season even more meaningful and special besides being filled with the yearly spooks, creative costumes, parties, and tricks or treats which has become mainstream and the “new norm” in the Philippines when celebrating the spooky season.
