We decorate our yard and make it very spooky and creepy for the kids. Lots of jack-o-lanterns, animated witches, skeletons, and ghosts. A creepy animated doorbell and a creepy animated doormat give the kids a fright when they come to the door for their treats. Ghostly moans and groans come inside the darkened house along with creepy Nox Arcana music. We dress in costume to answer the door and hand out the candy.
Once the trick-or-treaters are in bed and down for the night, the adults in the neighborhood come over to end Halloween with cocktails and a Halloween feast.
