1.The Halloween Business
Before we enjoy Halloween, we should buy something related to decorate our house and ourselves and even create a spooky Halloween logo for our party or event planning business!
Halloween has become a consumerist trap such as Halloween restricted diabolic-style gifts and horror movie viewing activities. They both stimulate people’s fear and curiosity about the other side and the unknown as well as their desire for consumption.
Featured costumes and accessories inspired by the design of this year’s hot events are also selling well, such as popular movie and TV classic characters and props and hot topics on social media.
So Halloween is also a money-making opportunity for businesses. How can businesses stand out from the crowd of other merchandise? Here are some tips to help you make a big deal on Halloween.
These three logos come from Logo Maker. What can we do with them? In our products, we can put these logos on them which will do lots of advantages to our business.
Firstly, we should design some stunning Halloween logos for stores. These logos must contain some factors related to the festival such as pumpkin, ghost, spider and so on. And their dominant hues should be black, grey and orange because those colors can create an atmosphere of terror and arouse people’s interest.
Secondly, it can show our business identity that we are different from others and make people know our products are used for Halloween at first sight. It can increase customer’s buying speed and buying intention and finally translates into company revenue.
Thirdly, store owners can use these logos to decorate their stores. It will make their stores more stunning and attractive than others.

2.The Origin of Jack-O’-Lantern
The Jack O’Lantern is a symbol used to celebrate All Hallows’ Day. Legend has it that a man named Jack was so stingy that he could not go to heaven when he died. He also could not go to hell because he made fun of the devil. So he had to walk around with a lantern until judgment day. To scare away these spirits on Halloween, people carved scary faces out of turnips, beets or potatoes to represent Jack O’Lantern. That is the origin of Jack O’Lantern and you can make a Jack O’Lantern easily by a pumpkin by yourself!
3.The Halloween Custom
On Halloween, children will carry Jack O’Lanterns, wear all kinds of strange costumes, go door to door to ask for candy and keep saying: “Trick or Treat”. If you refuse to give them candy, the children will get angry and punish you in various ways, such as dumping the garbage in your house, etc. until you give them candy.
4.The Halloween Activity
New York City also has a special Halloween night parade where turns up a bunch of vampires, zombies, witches, Frankenstein, etc. and welcomes the public to visit. There is no age, gender, regardless of class, nationality, even if you are a coward, you also can join their ranks to have a hot ghost carnival. The night parade makes people place themselves in it, just like to participate in a large masquerade ball.
5.The Halloween Nowadays
Now, Halloween is a kind of carnival which has an appeal for adults based on reversion. That’s why they travel around street dressed up as their favorite characters, watch scary movies, and visit haunted houses or fabled haunted places to release themselves.
Halloween is more of a children’s ritual and parent-child interaction activities too nowadays. Adults and children are at the same level without hierarchy on this day and they have more interactions and funny activities to increase the family atmosphere and emotions.
To sum up, Halloween is not only a festival to wear special horrible costumes but also a day for adults to release themselves and for children to play equal with others. And nowadays we can treat Halloween as a shopping festival too which is similar to Black Friday.
