How do you say Happy Halloween!
Czech: We do not translate Halloween, and we do not even say "happy halloween" because it hasn't taken root in my country.
Here is Halloween but in Catalonia we celebrate the "Castanyada" :
We don't celibrate the halloween in Iceland but it would be Gleðilega Hrekkjavöku in icelandic...
In Mexico there are many who do celebrate Halloween, although the larger "festivities", if I may, occur the next day, which is known as "The Day of the Dead". This consists of many widespread traditions honoring those who have passed on, and it is also characterised by a certain "touch of humor" which satirizes death itself.
Have a great one...
Halloween is not popular in Mexico, instead, we have El día de Muertos ("The Day of The Dead") on november 2nd.
But the translation would be: Feliz Halloween.
And same thing in Italy. Felice Halloween.
As Sandra said above.
Halloween is not a part of our traditions, although it does coincide with the eve of Dia de Todos os Santos, in the calendar. Still, Halloween is sometimes translated as Dia (or Noite) das Bruxas, here.
So I guess you could say "Feliz Dia das Bruxas".
Yes, it's true. But the Halloween day is "Tots Sants" which is the usual day to visit the cementery.
No Halloween festivities in Finland, so no translation into Finnish.
Chinese: 萬聖節前夕 万圣节前夕 wàngshèngjié qiánxī - All Saint's Day's Eve
Many people call Hallowe'en 萬聖節. It's a misnomer.
