What day is Halloween this year?

Halloween in 2023 falls on Tuesday, October 31, with the weekend closest to the holiday known as “”Halloweekend,”,” taking place on October 28 and 29.

What does Halloween mean?

The term “Halloween” has Christian origins dating back to 1745. It is derived from “Hallowe’en,” meaning “Saints evening.” “Hallow” refers to saints, while “even” denotes “Eve” in the Scottish dialect, later shortened to “e’en” or “een.” Thus, “Hallow Even” became “Hallowe’en” and eventually “Halloween.”

Halloween is celebrated on the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day, commonly known as All Saints’ Day.

It’s a time for celebration and remembrance of the dead, characterized by various customs and traditions, from trick-or-treating to haunted houses and spooky decorations.

It has to be noted that Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos are distinct celebrations that take place around the same time, from October 31 to November 2.

Halloween is centered around the dark and eerie aspects of death, while Dia de Muertos is a Mexican tradition that celebrates the connection between the living and the dead, emphasizing life after death.


Halloween is followed by All Saints’ Day (for which it is the vigil) on November 1 and All Souls’ Day on November 2. Together the three days of remembrance of the dead form the triduum (a religious observance lasting three days) of Hallowtide. People traditionally visit the graves of deceased relatives during this time. It is related to the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead.
