Every year Muscovites celebrate a holiday which seems to be a foreign festival.

Russian people look at the Halloween celebrations imported from the Anglo-Saxon world in two different ways. While clerics have an extremely negative attitude to Hallowen, most of young Russians like it very much. For them it's a good reason to have a fun. The streets and central clubs are usually overcrowded with different colourful charachters including  witches, nurses, various types of corpses, superheroes, rock and pop stars, both dead and living.
