-- Eating candy and decorated cakes

-- Dressing up in funny, frightening or outlandish costumes

-- "Trick-or-treating," that is, going from house to house in one's neighborhood and receiving candy, small toys or other goodies (for kids under 16)

-- Carving jack-o'-lanterns from pumpkins

-- Playing mild tricks on people who don't give you candy; an example would be spraying silly string on their porch

-- Attending costume parties

-- Watching horror movies on TV or in the theater

-- Decorating your house with the Halloween colors of orange and black, and with pictures or statues of witches, ghosts, black cats, pumpkins, skeletons and other seasonal symbols
