Halloween Ideas: Scare or Dare


Have you ever thought about the things you wish to do on Halloween? Something more fun and creative way to celebrate rather than be scared.

As part of Filipino culture, the people would scare me, with stories about ghosts and not ours, So, I grew up scared when Halloween came, it's the time I got a lot of series and high pressures and never-ending cowardly thrills! Definitely, I would have passed out if I hadn't walked out!

But as I grew up, I learned things to enjoy Halloween and It's pretty amazing when you just have to get the fear of the unknown. Here are some fun and exciting Halloween Goals!


Since it has been 2016 that I posted this, I've updated some ideas and we can work on the theme: Scare or Dare.


  • Haunted House Tour: Transform your home into a chilling haunted house and invite friends and family to navigate through spooky rooms and corridors.
  • Ghostly Movie Marathon: Set up an outdoor or indoor movie screening featuring classic horror films that are sure to send shivers down everyone's spine.
