How to Celebrate Halloween

31 Oct

Halloween comes on the 31st of October every year. If you want to celebrate, you have multiple options. You can throw a party with friends and family, decorate for the season, or participate in events around your town. Have fun and enjoy the festivities with friends and family members. With some preparation and planning, you and your loved ones can enjoy a fun and festive Halloween.

1. Having a Party

Have everyone wear a costume. Part of the fun of Halloween is dressing up. If you're hosting a party, invite all your guests to wear costumes. If you want, you can even have a contest where guests win different categories like "Scariest Costume," "Funniest Costume," and so on.[1]

  • You can have a specific theme and have guests dress for that theme. For example, try a sci-fi Halloween party or a Dracula-themed party.
  • Remember, not everyone likes dressing up. If guests don't want to wear a costume, don't push it.

2. Bob for apples

 Bobbing for apples is a classic Halloween tradition that many people love. Simply place some apples in a bucket of water and have guests try to lift them out with their mouths. This can be fun if you want a more lighthearted holiday party instead of something scary.[2]

3. Watch scary movies

 If you want, you can have a movie screening at your party. Show your favorite scary movies that are perfect for the season, like The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense, and films from the Halloween franchise.[3]

  • If you're serving alcohol at your party, have a drinking game where guests have to drink for a variety of reasons. For example, "Drink every time someone screams." Make sure to drink responsibly, however, and stop drinking if you start to feel dizzy or disoriented.

4. Play a scary music 

Play spooky music. Make a spooky playlist with disturbing songs like "Somebody's Watching Me" and the theme music from Halloween classics. Something like the theme to Rosemary's Baby can really set the mood.[4]

  • Keep in mind, not everything about a Halloween party has to be scary. You can also play lighthearted Halloween favorites, like the theme to Ghostbusters or "The Monster Mash."
