La Castanyada is celebrated on the 31st of October in Catalonia where families and friends gather to eat together chestnuts, marzipan sweets called ‘panellets’, sweet potatoes and preserved fruits and drink moscatell.

While English-speaking countries celebrate Halloween on the 31st of October, Catalonia has its own popular festivity on the same occasion, La Castanyada. Like Halloween or the Celtic Samhain, its origins are an ancient ritual festival of the dead ahead of All Saints’ Day.
