When I first moved to Sevilla there was no sign of anything Halloween, other than a few candies and masks available in the Marks & Spencer food section. And of course that seemed normal, except that Halloween was never a UK thing either, and I supposed M&S was carrying this stuff for North American expats. Fast forward twenty years and suddenly everybody is dressing up, there are cobwebs and spiders and witches and zombies all over the place. WTF? It feels weird. Mostly because it’s just a copy of what people here have seen in US films and TV series. Second hand customs created by marketing moguls.
