It's strange because it isn't really a big celebration for people over here and only in the last 10 years have people started doing more of a thing. We don't see houses decorated. Where we live we only see a handful of kids going round trick or treating. The school usually has a party to keep them off the streets. The last couple of years my kids(they're adults lol) go to the local nightclub that has a night for you to go dressed up. As I said it's only the last 10 years or so that some people in the bigger towns and cities will have a go at something.
We're more a Guy Fawkes (bonfire night) type of people..5th of november..lots of fireworks, bonfires. When younger you would dress up a dummy and go round houses asking 'penny for the guy' and barbecues. Would burn the dummy on the bonfires,watch fireworks go off and eat. We did all this with our kids when younger but nowadays it's all a professional event that you go to in your local area (it means paying money) .It was better surrounded by friends and family.
Guy Fawkes 1605...gunpowder plot..was caught with lots of explosives under the house of lords trying to kill the king..the survival of the king was celebrated with bonfires and an annual event

Very interesting what you shared Ember!
well, my plans are to be able to go to a "Haunted Forest" that is very well done and not too far from where i live (about 40 mn away)... but it costs so i don't know if that will be possible.
Here is what they do (i copied/pasted from their site):

"The Monster Corn Maze is more than just a corn maze haunt.  We have delved deep into a dark wooded forest, but before you can escape the corn to the woods our 3 story house of horror blocks your path.  The creatures who once had infested only the corn have consumed an entire village that has grown within the infected woods.  Scream all you can but don't expect to be heard, for the village walls and thick wooded forest have a way of muffling the extreme screams that the creatures you encounter are sure to invoke."

If we can't we will at least watch a "Halloween movie", read a story, that sort of things.... :scypumk:
