What is Halloween?
Halloween is the festival of Samhain, originated from classical Catholics. It is a holiday that falls on the 31st of October every year. The tradition began as people going houses-to-houses dressed as demons.
In modern days, kids dress up in costumes and go door-to-door, doing trick-or-treat. However, it’s believed that the dead souls return to their homes on this day. Therefore, people lit bonfires, get dressed, and throw scary parties to ward off the evil spirits.

Decorations for Halloween
It is simple, but it is not easy. There should be creepy decorations inside and outside the location to create a ghostly atmosphere. Here, we are highlighting a few quick tips to get you started.
- Start to decorate a lawn if you have one. If you manage to pull off a creepy yet rough decoration, it will make people curious to wonder what is inside the house. Thus, they say, first impression matters.
Start to pile up dirt and fallen leaves. Then place old shoes in such a position to make everyone think there is a dead body.
Give your lawn a glimpse of the graveyard by placing tombstones. Furthermore, if you have a tree, use loads of spider webs. Also, a scarecrow is a perfect object to scare all away, the saints, and the evils.
Furthermore, yield a few skulls and human-size skeletons at random to create the atmosphere. Most importantly, do not forget the lights! Flickering bulbs would be an appropriate fit for it.
- Moving indoors now, where the real fun begins! There is so much ordinary that can be turned into eerie outlooks. To start, decorate the door and windows. One can hand wreath covered in blood at the entrance. The windows can have light timber beams attached to the shutters to give a haunted exterior. Have unusual wall clocks that make creepy sounds. The next step is to cover your furniture with white cloth pieces. In addition to spider webs covering most of your properties. This isolated, old lookout gives an instant horror feeling.
- Power off the electrical supply, and place white candles to lit the place. Do not forget to carve the pumpkins; because Halloween is incomplete without pumpkins. Don’t overdo but use the pumpkins to its best, as it brings a beautiful touch to your horror-decor.
However, you can get as excessive and scary as you will. Thus, it will assure a good Halloween eve.
