Representatives of Russia's traditional religions consider celebrating of Halloween as games with the evil spirit. According to them, this holiday is not a part of Russian culture, and it is only for atheists and carefree youth.

The Mufti of Moscow and the Central Region , the representative of the Central Spiritual Board of Russian Muslims Albir Krganov told RIA "News", that he consider Halloween celebration as a  blasphemous action.

"Believers, cultural people refer to this holiday indifference and even negative, because for the believer it is an element of Satanism, to wear some clothes of different devils,"- said Krganov.

The same opinion is shared by Orthodox and Jews.

In the night from October 31 to November 1 in U.S. and Canada people celebrate Halloween. It is an ancient Celtic festival, also called as the eve of All Saints.
