Halloween falls on October 31 every year and is observed as a holiday, especially in the West. It is a festive time for many as children dress up in costumes and go from house to house for trick- treating. The owner of each house gives candy or delicious treats to each trick-treater.
People also decorate their houses with carved vegetables and pumpkin lanterns and create creepy haunted house decorations. While many associate this day with fun, costumes, pumpkins and candy, some just want to stay back home and enjoy their own share of indoor Halloween.
