But wait, what exactly is Halloween and when do we really celebrate 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 can I expect 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 an avenger, your favourite celebrity, a character from your beloved TV show or absolutely anything else under the sun - no costume idea is out of reach this day. You can definitely spot the ones who take it as a sport with their faces painted in hyper-realistic precision!

Trick or Treat!

Halloween is a day of candies, candies, and yes, even more candies. Kids or adults no bar! So put on your best spooky outfit & head out to fill up your buckets with all the candy you can dream of! If collecting sugary goodness isn't your cup of tea, you can head to other spooky experiences lined up for you this Halloween.

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 spooky theatre show, laugh under the breath at chilling comedy shows, or listen to scary horror stories while clutching the ends of your seats!

Party it up!

To be honest, who really passes up an opportunity to head bop to amazing songs in a club? Halloween, for you, can also be one big party! Spend the scariest weekend of the year dancing to some electric music and guzzling down some drinks while wearing some chilling costumes - if that's not squad ghouls, we don't know what is!

Time to have some skele-fun! See you at a Halloween party soon.
