Fråga: 
How long has Halloween been celebrated in Sweden?
Svar: 

Halloween has only been celebrated in Sweden since the 1990s, and has rapidly become established here − not least as a result of smart commercial marketing. There are no public holidays or extended weekends in the calendar between the summer holiday and All Saints’ Day.

All saint's day is a more solemn affair that's celebrated November 1. Candles are lit on family graves.
