Amazing Yet Frightening Festivals Across The World You Must Check Out Today

Personal_Finance / Travel & Holidays Nov 04, 2020 - 04:20 PM GMT

By: Sumeet_Manhas


The world is vast and filled with various wonders that you can not even imagine. You always have thought that Halloween is the weirdest festival in the world, then you're mistaken. Some of the countries worldwide have festivals that would look very frightening to us, but for them, they are sacred and memorable. These festivals are being celebrated in their respective countries for centuries.

Some of these festivals are so strange that if you do not witness them with your eyes, you would not believe that they exist. Here are some of the most memorable yet frightening festivals across the world you must check out based on a recent infographic by the Betway’s blog.

Vegetarian Festival or Nine Gods Festival

Being celebrated in Thailand, it is not a traditional vegetarian festival. People do all sorts of weird things at this festival, but they believe that they are scared.

  1. People celebrating this festival pierce their chicks with knives.
  2. They believe that they do not feel any pain while piercing their chicks because the spirits are protecting them.
  3. Some people even do partial skinning because they believe that by doing these things, you go into a trance-like state.
  4. Time:

This festival happens each year at the end of September and October.

Día de Los Muertos

The name of the festival in English means the day of the dead.

  1. The celebration of Mexico's dia de Los Muertos involves the skulls and skeletons. 
  2. The name of the festival may sound weird, but in this, the people of Mexico pay respect to the members of their family who have passed away.
  3. The vibe of the festival is opposite to the name of the festival. This festival has a very vibrant and full-color vibe.
  4. Time:

Dia de Los Muertos happens on All Saints Day and All Souls day.

Triora Halloween

Triora Halloween is a different type of Halloween that is being celebrated in Italy.

  1. The story behind Triora Halloween is that hundreds of years ago, some witches were burned in a town. The town is called 'town of witches.'
  2. Many scary events are being held in this town throughout the year, but the main event is called Triora Halloween.
  3. To celebrate the festival, women of the town dress up as witches.
  4. Time:

Triora Halloween happens every year on 31st October.

Busó Carnival

Being celebrated in Hungary every year, this festival is surely a weird one.

  1. The intention behind the celebration of the festival is to chase away the cold winter and welcome spring.
  2. Hairy, horned devils do the task of chasing the winter away by putting on a smiling mask.
  3. These hairy devils are nothing but men wearing costumes, but they are scary enough.
  4. Time:

Buso Carnival is being celebrated in late February.
