Japan And Halloween

I eventually would love to travel to different states and countries to see how they celebrate Halloween. I love travel and I love learning about different places and cultures, and of course, I LOVE Halloween so it makes perfect sense that I would want to see how they mesh in different locations.

I recently can across a video of Halloween In Japan and that inspired this post.

Now, if you have read some of my blog I'm sure I must have mentioned that I also love Asian Horror movies! I love that a lot of their horror stores come from their particular history and mythology. Plus they are just really good at being creepy ;-)

Since Halloween is not as common in Japan it would be very interesting to see how they have adopted some of the traditions. I found out from another video that they still don't Trick R' Treat though unless you are a little kid and that is only at a parade.

I definitely want to go there during Halloween!

Halloween Movie List

So every Halloween there are certain movies we fit in's tradition. I have a master list of movies that are good for watching during Halloween and we pick through them depending on time and schedules. 

We watch everything from Horror to more Disney Halloween. Some of the old kids specials are the best! Although I wish there were more Horror movies about Halloween. I will categorize these by Family Horror and then good old Horror.
