Movies to Watch This Coming Halloween Season
By: Nathin John
Halloween has always been a celebrated event for kids and adults both. The celebration itself is observed on the 31st of October or more accurately the eve of Western Christian’s feast of All Hallows’ Day dedicated to the remembrance of departed souls, including martyrs and saints. Usually celebrated with family, friends and sometimes colleagues at a workplace, there are a lot of parties and events to attend to. There is a lot to do for adults and kids, host dress-up parties, and go for grave hunting or create haunted venues.
Halloween offers its own flair and the vibes are actually felt everywhere you go. There is a lot of home decoration that goes around this festive as well with families marking scary faces on pumpkins and putting them on their gardens. But the best of all is when children go out for trick-or-treat, so it is best to keep small presents and sweets to make these friendly little spirits in the neighborhood satisfied.
