Díaz-Canel, Halloween, Cuba

The day that Díaz-Canel undertook it against Cubans for celebrating Halloween

MIAMI, United States. — Surely the celebration of Halloween this Monday, October 31 will have replicas in Cuba. This, despite the fact that the ruler Miguel Díaz-Canel already assured on one occasion that it was a celebration completely alien to Cuban culture.

It happened in November 2020. On that occasion, the dolphin of Castroism, with the country in the midst of a pandemic, alluded to the celebration of Halloween.

“Not this year, but the year before there were state entities that lent themselves for Halloween. Halloween is a party that has nothing to do with Cuban culture,” Díaz-Canel said at a meeting.

The ruler also maintained that there were families who favored the Halloween celebrations.

“This year it was less, but there were boys in Calle 13 who celebrated Halloween, there were boys in certain institutions who also did it. There are families that encourage this,” he added.

Raúl Castro’s successor has repeatedly insisted on the battle that must be waged on the island against “the hegemonic policy of cultural colonization,” which, as he has said, “seeks to fracture the commitment to Cuban roots and essences.”

Halloween is a holiday that is celebrated every year on October 31. The tradition originated with the ancient celtic festival of Samhainwhen people lit bonfires and dressed up to scare away ghosts.

As early as the 8th century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a date to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints’ Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The night before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later as Halloween. Over time, Halloween became a day of trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, holiday gatherings, dressing up, and eating treats.
