Halloween Traditions



Halloween from Around the World
Halloween in Nigeria

    The Odo Festival is held to mark the return of the dead (odo) to those still living, this occurs in the village of Igbo Nigeria.

    The festival has three stages. The first stage is observed with ritual celebrations and festivities to welcome those returning from the spirit world. The spirits stay for six or more months. Their departure is an emotional affair as they will not return for two years.

    There are Odo plays featuring different characters in costumes. Most roles are by men with women as chorus members and as spectators.
