Explanation:
Hi Marta!
In Mexico,

Valentines's Day = "Día del Amor y la Amistad". (Day of Love and Friendship).

Also known as: "Día de San Valentín"

Halloween = "Halloween"...for most people, especially children. It's also known in Mexico as "El Día de Muertos" when all Mexicans pay homage to their departed loved ones, family, friends, etc.

Hope this helps:-)

Perdón Marta!!!..me equivoqué con un detalle (creo)


Explanation:
En mi respuesta anterior, mencioné que "Halloween" también se conocía en México como el "Día de Muertos"...pues creo que me equivoqué al respecto.

De todas maners y tal como te había dicho, en español se conoce tal cual: "Halloween".

Día de los Enamorados / Día de San Valentín y Halloween


Explanation:
In Spain (and apparently in other countries too), Valentine's day is most commonly known as el "día de los enamorados," as well as "diá de San Valentín."

Halloween is understood in English. I have seen store circulars advertising things for "Halloween" (costumes and such), even though it's not even really celebrated here! The film title was also left as is.

Hope it helps.
