THE DEVIL'S VILLAGE
The solstice celebrated in Trás-os-Montes
Every year, in northen Portugal, the village of Cidões celebrates the transition from summer to winter on October 31st. When the night comes, the devil also arrives, until a druid defeats him. In the next Halloween, of course, he is there again, bringing night and winter. In Cidões, all the inhabitants meet the devil annually. But what is the devil, anyway?
