Ok, so Halloween in Stockholm may not be as spooky or flamboyant as you’re normally used to. It’s not that easy to convince an entire population to cover their windows with cobwebs, let their kids wander the dark streets begging strangers for candy and generally revel in all things creepy and crawly. But you’d be surprised at how quickly this holiday has gained popularity both commercially and traditionally, in just a few years. So whether this is your first Halloween or your first Swedish Halloween you’re bound to find someplace in Stockholm to do the Moooonster Maaaash this year.
