Only nine percents of Russians said they plan to celebrate Halloween, according to a new poll conductedby Levada Centre pollster.

      According to the pollster, 64 percent of the respondents said they are not going to party and dress as ghosts, zombies or witches on Halloween's night. 27 percent of respondents said they have never heard of the holiday.

      Education officials and religious figures always express fears about Halloween celebrations, saying it can cause harm to children's psychic. This year the celebrations were officially banned at schools in South Russia’s Krasnodar Territory.
