Halloween celebrations in India-Halloween costumes for kids

Halloween In India:

India has warmed up to the idea of Halloween celebrations in its own sweet way. Many children dress up in fancy costumes and visit other homes in the neighborhood. Trick or treat happens where kids visit other homes for candy and sweets.

Some families carve lanterns with ‘scary’ faces out of pumpkins or decorate their homes and gardens in Halloween style. (This generally happens in the urban areas of India). If you are at home on Halloween, it is a good idea to have a bowl of small presents or sweets to offer to anyone who knocks on your door.


Though most Indians are not aware of the real reason behind the celebrations, our younger generation are more than keen to adapt to the western way of life. Thus, Halloween has become one more festival we celebrate.

Every Year Halloween we celebrate on the 31st of October.

Halloween Themed Party Ideas:

Halloween parties have become the norm of the day in most urban communities, schools, colleges, and corporates. Halloween parties are also being hosted in a grand manner in all the renowned hotels all over India.

Hosting a Halloween party is a lot of hard work, but it is the most fun way of celebrating Halloween in India. Deck up your house with Halloween decorations like fake cobwebs, jack o lanterns, pumpkins, hanging skeletons and more. Please click here for more Halloween decorations props.
