Fun Fact Friday: Halloween

As we get all dressed up and wear pumpkin sweaters in the U.S.  in Namibia it’s just another day.   Actually most of the world doesn’t celebrate Halloween.  The graphic  shows the countries in orange that do celebrate, those in tan that have a similar celebration and in beige no celebration.  As you can see the whole continent of Africa doesn’t celebrate it.  For perspective read this blog post of an American in Namibia who tried to celebrate Halloween a few years ago.
