So, what exactly is Halloween (and when is it?)

Much like the rest of the world, Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October every year in India as well. A fairly recent addition to a list of days to celebrate, Halloween is still an upcoming festival, mostly driven by Western pop-culture. Traditionally, Halloween marks the eve of the Western feast of All Hallow's Day, a three-day observance dedicated to remembering the dead. Today, trick-or-treating, costume parties, carving pumpkins, playing pranks, telling scary stories or watching horror films is what Halloween is all about.

What usually happens during a Halloween Party?

Mind-boggling Costumes!

What’s Halloween if you don’t bring your A-game with costumes? Whether you dress up as a zombie, a teapot, a superhero or anything else your heart desires, it is that ONE time of the year where looking scary will win you prizes! Not only do you get to dress up but get ready to see some truly spine-chilling costumes all over.

Trick or Treat!

Halloween is all about the candy. While the kids get a one-day pass to gorge on whatever they want, the adults aren't far behind. So, wear your haunting outfits and fill your buckets with all of your favourite sweets! If that’s not your cup of tea, and you’re ready to skip the tricks and dig into the treats, indulge in special brunches and dinners that are perfectly designed for this season!

Try Something New!

While costumes and trick or treating are a Halloween given, there's so much more to try! This year, give Halloween a twist. Catch a screening of a horror film, join mystery camps for a spooky time, and how about making some ghost-shaped cookies at a baking workshop?

Party it up!

Who doesn't want another reason to dance and enjoy great music? Halloween can also be one big party! Spend the scariest weekend of the year dancing to some thumping music and guzzling down some drinks while wearing some thrilling costumes.

Sounds good? See you at a Halloween party soon. Boo!
