Before we start with our Halloween game activities for adults and kids, let’s find out first what Halloween is all about:

What Is Halloween All About?

Halloween is celebrated each year the night before All Saints on October 31st.

The tradition started with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to scare off ghosts.

As Halloween evolved, by the 1920s and 1930s, and turned to be a secular but more community-centered holiday.

It became a tradition to go trick or treat, watch Halloween movies, attend Halloween parties, and visit haunted houses and Halloween parades.

And with all these new traditions and activities over time, it became an event the whole family can enjoy.
