What Makes a Good Halloween Word?
Apart from the obvious Halloween-inspired words like pumpkins and lanterns, there are loads of words that can be used around Halloween.
Anything spooky, scary, or a little creepy can be used as a Halloween-inspired word, as can anything that means ‘Halloween’ to you, whatever that may be.
Halloween is a holiday that has been around for centuries, with its roots in pagan celebrations.
Over time, Halloween has evolved into the holiday we know and love today, with Trick-or-Treating, pumpkin carving, and apple bobbing all becoming popular traditions.
Halloween is now a time for dressing up in costumes, going to parties, and watching horror movies.
For many people (me included) Halloween is the most exciting time of the year!
What are your plans for Halloween this year? Will you be going to any parties? Or perhaps you’ll be staying at home and handing out candy to the Trick-or-Treaters?
Whatever you’re doing, I hope you have a spooktacular time!
