Did you know that people have been celebrating Halloween for about 2,000 years? It has evolved since then when the main focus was on the end of the harvest season. And holds new opportunities each year.
If you are wondering how to make this year special then you should try something new that still screams Halloween.
Start with these suggestions on how to celebrate Halloween in 2022.
Decorations aren’t just for the holidays. In fact, you might find decorating for Halloween even more fun. You can express your creativity with cobwebs coated in spiders, zombie body parts reaching out of gravestones, or ghosts floating around on your front porch.
And the best part about Halloween decorations is that so many people get to enjoy them while trick or treating. They can even be interactive with creepy noises and ghostly fog as guests step on your doormat.
Your house shouldn’t be the only one having fun. Be sure to pick out a great Halloween costume to complete the spooky ambiance.
Wear your costume to scare trick-or-treaters or host a Halloween party to see everyone’s creative concoctions. Consider having a costume contest to be sure that everyone will bring their best attire.
A classic, yet always an inventive way to expensive your Halloween enthusiasm, is pumpkin carving. Pick out a stencil online or go freehand to show off your carving skills.
Be sure to save the pumpkin seeds for baking or even scoop the insides for a pumpkin pie.
Then light up your jack-o-lantern with battery-operated candles to include in your home’s spooky decor.
Be sure to take your Halloween celebration outside of your home. Do so by visiting Halloween attractions like a haunted house, a hay ride, or a pumpkin patch to get in the spirit.
You can also travel to nearby theme parks that offer special Halloween events. Or go to a local bonfire to roast marshmallows, bob for apples, and trick or treat.
Bring Halloween 2022 into your kitchen with themed treats. Make sugar cookies cut out in the shape of pumpkins, ghosts, witches, and vampires. Top them off with some orange frosting or Halloween-themed sprinkles to complete your spooky baked goods.
You can even add some fright night into your savory dishes. For example, add olives and mozzarella cheese rounds to your meatballs and spaghetti to make eyeballs in worms. It may sound gross but it tastes delicious.
Share your cuisines at Halloween parties or take them to the office to give your co-workers a scary treat.
