All Souls’ Day and Halloween

28 Sep 2018

All Souls’ Day on November 02

Estonians don’t traditionally celebrate Halloween, but they do have a day to honour their dead. All Souls’ Day (Hingedepäev) is a solemn, private affair in which the dead are honoured by placing candles in windows or on graves. Indeed any cemetery visited on that night will be filled with the eerily beautiful glow of flickering flames.

Halloween

While Estonians don’t really celebrate Halloween, the western customs associated with the day have made their way to Estonia and many bars and clubs around town organise Halloween events.
Take part in a costume party at the Red Emperor’s Hostel Bar. Club Münt promises a Monster Mash that will have you dancing like a zombie from Thriller on October 31 (2018). Fancy a rave? Club Factory is hosting Hardstyle United - Halloween Special on October 26 (2018), with special guest Marius Tiberian, a professional UV painter from Spain. Come with a full costume and get free entrance.
