All the months down comes the most creative, fun, month of the year, October.

Everyone longs for October and the one special childhood and adulthood tantrum it brings, Halloween. It's that time of year when you can get away with a little bit of magic and a whole lot of makeup. Just by hearing the name of Halloween, hearts get filled with joy and a tint of spook. After all, why it is the season of creepiness, weirdness, and spookiness. And it's all in the spirit of fun. But let's not forget trick or treat!

Halloween was constantly propelled previously known as All Hallows' Eve. For us humans, it is simple, just going around shouting 'trick or treat' in the hopes of getting a lot of candy. But for others, maybe it is a bit adventurous, has a bit of magic, but definitely is a lot of fun to see the human world decorated and dressed like them and their world.

It was said that the line between our reality and life following death was particularly flimsy around All Hallows' Eve. Harvest time expressly implied before evenings, colder temperatures, and trouble in supporting food, particularly during the Middle Ages. Demise was continuously hiding around the bend, and spirits were said to wander around during October unreservedly. Therefore, Halloween has the creepy, spooky, but magical air we know and love today. 

People dress in a costume of different characters, inspiration from their favorite scary movie, and some of their names go like – Frankenstein, Dracula, Casper, and many more. It is considered to be a 'jargon' of a night.

In these times, one dresses their pets as well. With plenty of cute costumes for pets, is it surprising that dogs are the ones who are dressed the most? If you are wondering, some of the dog's badass and scary name ideas can be Willow Chucky, Poe Samara, Annabelle Fright, Freddy Tarot, Devil Creeper, Dexter Blade, Rosemary Carver, Skeleton Moon, Fog Fangs, and many more noir themed names. It's such a treat to watch!
