Every year on the 31st of October, Halloween returns. It is a chance for many people who celebrate it to come together with friends and family and have some fun. From costume parties and macabre décor to special seasonal activities like trick-or-treating and pumpkin carving, there are plenty of ways to join in the Halloween fun.
Here are 6 simple ways to make get your party going, simple and happening!
Dress Up. Dressing up is one of the most enjoyable aspects of any party. If you decide to throw a party, urge your attendees to come dressed up. You may choose a theme, such as characters from The Vampire Diaries or various Star Wars characters, or simply let everyone express their creativity by dressing up in any costume they want.
Putrid Punch and Scrumptious Treats. Begin with a mixture of bubbly soda and sour fruit juices. Add a few drops of food coloring to make your punch resemble blood or bubbling purple witches’ brew once you have got it tasting the way you want it to.
Set up platters piled high with delicious desserts like cookies, cupcakes, and chocolates alongside the drinks, or keep it simple with a few candy baskets. Make your own Halloween treats, such as candy apple skulls and vampire fang cookies.
Bob for Apples. Bobbing for apples is a popular Halloween activity that provides endless pleasure and puts a smile on everyone’s face. Fill a large bucket with water, add a few apples, and challenge your visitors to pull them out with only their tongues. Whether you win or lose, you can bet there will be plenty of laughter and joy.
Scary Movies and Spooky Tunes. Convert your home into a theater of terror with a private showing of some chilling, horror movies. Stick with timeless classics like Halloween, Night of the Living Dead, The Exorcist, or scare the living daylights out of your guests with The Nun, or the Pet Sematary remake.
You can also queue up some pop favorites like Monster Mash by Boris Pickett, Thriller by Michael Jackson, and Zombie by The Cranberries, and many more.
Jack-o-Lanterns. Purchase some large pumpkins and cut scary faces or other festive motifs into one side of the pumpkins after removing the tops and scooping out the seeds and pulp. Place a candle into each pumpkin and replace the lid once you’re satisfied with your work to bring your jack-o-lantern to life with an eerie glow. This is a good activity for children as well.
Trick or Treat. Of course, how is Halloween even Halloween without trick or treat? Go door-to-door collecting candy dressed in your best costume. Bring a sack large enough to take all your bounty home. If you live in a residential area, you will almost certainly be visited by several waves of costumed creepers during the night. Keep one or two bowls of treats available and take turns dishing them out to the boys and ghouls that come knocking.
Time to be spooky and have fun this Halloween!
