Halloween has been celebrated for centuries. The idea of spookiness and hauntings are always fun. Scaring your neighbors on Hallow’s eve is always a joy. Putting up all the cobwebs, fake spiders, plastic skulls, and jack-o-lanterns is a good bonding experience for families. Thinking up pranks and tricks to scare away Trick or Treaters is even more fun. Halloween celebrations are now much more toned down than it used to, with more focus on the treats than the tricks.

Maybe creating your own ads, promotional banners, and backgrounds may be necessary to create a vintage Halloween vibe. How did they celebrate halloween, once upon a time?
