    Halloween

    Many cultures have a strong historical tradition when it comes to dressing up around Halloween and exchanging different kinds of candy or food, but in only a few of these cultures, children go from door to door and ask for candy saying: “Trick or treat!”.

    Christmas

    Christmas in America is a whole different story; as soon as it gets cold, people start looking forward to Christmas. Houses are decorated with numerous lights, and many letters are written to Santa Claus. Religious people attend mass at Christmas evening. The Christmas tree is often decorated with 'candy cane'. This 'Christmas' candy is shaped like a cane. A remarkable phenomena... each year you won't be able to miss the Christmas sweaters. In all different colours, with all kinds of Christmas scenes: from tiny snowflakes to large snowmen. These sweaters are especially loved by older women.
