Halloween is a traditionally rich festival. Many folks come out and walk the night streets on the 31st of every October. Many of us do not know where the holiday came from, but we enjoy it all the same. It is a time for adults and children to let loose. We ask ourselves in different costumes and take on a new life for the night. We live out our fantasy and enjoy to the fullest. But can you really do something else during Halloween apart from trick-or-treating? Can you have fiendishly fun Halloween party? All that you need to know is the main theme of the festivity.
Halloween is a festival where the dead are remembered. It has also been influenced by the supernatural aspects such as mythical creatures, demons and devils. In some cultures, Halloween was thought to be a day when the gates of hell opened up and every evil spirit would be released into the human world. People would then dress up as zombies and mythical creatures so that the demons and he devil would not know they were humans. In essence costumes are a camouflage that enables humans to blend in to the supernatural dimension. Humans are able to blend in with ghost and any other ghoulish creatures that are wondering the world on this night.
What this means is that you need to come up with games that take up this aspect of Halloween. The games need to be spooky and scary so that they fit into the overall theme of Halloween. Therefore, you need to set the stage just right to instill fear and mystery in the games. One of the best Halloween games you can set up is a witch’s tavern where you can get your friends to dress up as witches and cast spells from a spell book. You can have loads of scary fun with this game but do not overdo things. It is only meant to be a game.
Another idea for a Halloween games that can rally inject ghoulish fun for families is gourd games. Pumpkins are not just for carving jack-o’-lanterns. You can use the pumpkins in your very own hockey game. Coupled with brooms, you can sweep the pumpkins along the floor and try and score against your opponents. It can be played by the whole family for endless hours of fun. But remember, safety comes first. Play the game in a safe environment where the possibly of injuries are limited.
Apart from physical games, you can gang up your friends and families together and dress up in scary costumes. Dim all the lights in the house and sit in a circle and take turns telling scary stories. A flash would be welcome to illuminate the scary masks you have on while you tell the story. Each person should get a turn to tell his or her scary story. The stories ideally should be fictional stories with some hint of realism. You can base your story on an actual fact but twist it in a way that suits the holiday. You can for example share a scary story of the local graveyard where dead people rise from their graves to haunt the living. Use sound effects to really scare your friends such as clapping your hands together unexpectedly or shinning the torch on their faces.
