Halloween is still largely considered to be an American holiday, but more and more countries are joining in on the spooky sweet fun each year, and it seems like Halloween may one day be a holiday that the entire world celebrates together!
Don’t you know that you don’t get a treat if you’re not wearing a costume? In France it’s no costume no problem, and even though they’re relatively new to the holiday, people are happy to give out treats to any trick-or-treaters who show up at their door.
Costumed kids and parents take to the streets of Paris, France in search of sweets. It has become a yearly tradition for families to go trick-or-treating around Paris on Halloween night, due in large part to the 1997 advertising push by American companies and France’s own Telecom to make Halloween an official holiday.
The Antrobus Soul-Cakers are a British mummers troupe (folk actors) who perform a souling play (a play about death and revival) each year at Halloween for the eager holiday crowds in Cheshire. This picture was taken in 1976, but the tradition is just as popular today as it was back then.
To a pumpkin, the worst part of carving is having to scoop out the brains! I wonder if human heads last any longer than pumpkins once they've been scraped clean and lit up from the inside with a candle?
Apparently the grandfather of grunge isn't dead, he's just been plotting a way to defeat Batman!
Kurt CoBANE has moved out of Seattle and in to Gotham City, and his voice change is an unfortunate side effect of all the drugs fed to him by his insane wife Courtney Love. Maybe that's why he's so angry at ol' Batsy...
If two Trekkers ever decided to tie the knot in full costume on Halloween then they'd most certainly need this cake to be in attendance!
Combining the forces of geekdom with the holiday made for cosplayers, the Black Cherry cake company have really outdone themselves with this colorful work of edible art. And is that a cute little kitty hanging out on the side?
Talk about stepping up your pumpkin carving game! Pumpktris was created by Nathan Pryor, a guy who was clearly tired of just looking at jack-o-lanterns and wanted a little interactivity with his Halloween decor.
This fully playable pumpkin has a LED light gameboard and uses the stem as a controller, and Nathan has been kind enough to include a step-by-step tutorial of the entire process in case you want to make one for yourself.
The creator of this awesome Power Loader costume, like the one Ripley pilots in the scifi classic Aliens, clearly needed a way to get themselves and their baby to safety no matter what sort of heavy objects stood in their way.
If babies figure out how to pilot Power Loaders what's next? Truck driving babies? Baby fighter jet pilots fighting cute little wars over teething biscuits? Beware the baby uprising!
The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers aren't big fans of Halloween, and not because everyday is Halloween to them because they're always wearing a costume because that's too easy.
The real reason they don't like Halloween is the guy they're battling in this video- the Pumpkin Rapper. How do you battle a villain with the power of hip hop on his side? With a terrible rhyme scheme, that's how!
A bunch of kooky seniors from the Greenspring retirement community in Springfield, Virginia got together and put on a show to one of those moldies but goodies called The Monster Mash, you know, the graveyard smash.
My guess is this video will catch on in a flash, and every senior from San Diego to Queens will be doing their own version of that bone rattling Halloween classic!
Remember when Atreyu's horse Artax got stuck in the mud and died during The Neverending Story? Or how about that creepy clown fireman from the Brave Little Toaster? Do you recall tripping out on a boat with Willy Wonka?
We may have experienced these movie-based traumas as children, but they still scare the crap outta us to this day!

Every year around Halloween Destructoid, the video game site not the giant city eating robot, gathers all Halloween related video game content in what they refer to as a "roundup".
How do they lasso all those bytes of information? No matter, what's really important here is the fact that they've got the goods on all sorts of cool in-game content created in honor of All Hallow's Eve, from funky costumes your characters can wear to virtual trick-or-treating and more.
Who needs tricks or treats when you've got your gaming console to feed your head?
The buildings pictured in this collection didn't want to be left out of the Halloween fun, and since there's no way they can go trick-or-treating they had to settle for wearing a ridiculous costume and standing around looking like great big Halloweenies.
