    You have arrived in England. In 1000 A.D. the church designated November 2 as All Souls’ Day, a time for honoring the dead. Celebrations in England resembled Celtic commemorations of Samhain, complete with bonfires and masquerades. Poor people would visit the houses of wealthier families and receive pastries called soul cakes in exchange for a promise to pray for the souls of the homeowners’ dead relatives. Known as souling, the practice was later taken up by children, who would go from door to door asking for gifts such as food, money and ale.

    Congratulations! You found the black cat. In England, your luck is said to turn good if a black cat crosses your path. The next stop is Italy.

    You’ve arrived in Italy just in time. The medieval walled town of Corinaldo, northeast of Ancona in central Italy's le Marche region, calls itself the Italian Capital of Halloween. The last week of October at la festa di Halloween or festa delle Streghe (witches), the town features entertainment, spooky attractions, and taverns culminating on Halloween night with a show of music, fire, and lights all around the town.
