In Denmark, All Saints’ Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in November. On Halloween, children dress up as ghosts and go around ringing door bells as they do on ‘Shrovetide’, a children’s festival usually on Quinquagesima Sunday for which they dress up and go around with their tins trying to collect money by singing to those who open the door. On Halloween, when the door is opened, they say ‘trick or treat’ (in English), and if they are not given a cookie or money, they make trouble, just like on Shrovetide.
