Halloween, sometimes spelled Hallowe’en, is known by many names – All Hallows’ Evening, All Saints’ Eve, and Samhain are just a few. Though once a religious celebration (it still is in some areas of the world), here in the US we typically celebrate Halloween by dressing in costumes, trick-or-treating, and carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns.
In October we see people decorating their houses with spider webs, skeletons, witches, and jack-o-lanterns. Those with small children usually use more benign characters from well-loved children’s shows like Peanuts and Winnie-the-Pooh. There are even those who make their own versions of haunted houses and invite friends and neighbors over.
Speaking of haunted houses, there are plenty around the country to visit. With countless horror movies, TV shows, and books to emulate, people flock to these haunted houses to get their adrenalin pumping and practice their own terrified screams. Some theme parks, like Disney and Six Flags, use this opportunity to have their own fright fests, some more frightful than others.
Those horror movies and TV shows are another way people like to celebrate Halloween. Whether you prefer truly terrifying like The Shining
or moderately scary like The Cabin in the Woods
or kid-friendly like Hocus Pocus
there are tons of movies and shows to get you in the Halloween spirit.
You can choose to dress like a character from one of those scary movies, or cosplay your favorite comic book hero, or “guise” like a witch or ghost. Whichever way you choose to dress for Halloween, it’s fun to pretend, at least for a little while.
Once you have your costume set, out into the world you go. One of the favorite activities on Halloween is to go door to door in small-town neighborhoods showing off costumes and yelling, “Trick or treat,” for a bit of candy. Primarily for the younger of us, oftentimes we adults get into the fun while shepherding our little ones through the darkening evening. But remember, only visit those houses with the front door light on!
