Why Nigeria Should Declare Halloween Day A Public Holiday

Halloween is a ceremony held for the dead, It is celebrated in most of the western world on All Souls Day.

Although All Souls Day is a memorial for the Christian religion, Halloween seems more like a secular practice that is well entrenched in western culture.

It is often marked by watching horror movies, reading about ghost stories and attending mass.

In Nigeria, only Christians and Catholics celebrate Halloween. Africans have a way of celebrating the dead in many cultures but Halloween in the western sense is marked mainly by Catholics in Nigeria who remember their dead relatives and pray for their souls.

Some Nigerians watch horror movies on Halloween day which is a day before the feast of All Saints Day. The celebration of Halloween though not accompanied by any public holiday has helped to spread belief in spirits and ghosts in the world.
