Boo! Did we get you? That’s all right: on Halloween, the sweetest and spookiest night of the year, there are plenty more tricks and treats where that came from. A favorite holiday in the United States and the world over, Halloween is the celebration of all that is ghoulish and gnarly. Its most famous custom is trick-or-treating.

You know the drill: children don their best costumes and go door to door through the neighborhood with their friends, knocking on doors and asking “Trick or treat!” They get pieces of candy dropped into their plastic pumpkins (or pillowcases, if they go for a big haul) and end up with piles of treats to gobble up by the end of the night.

You may be too old to dress up and go around in search of tasty treats. However, you can still light up the jack o’lantern, put on a horror movie or play some scary music, and put your knowledge of the holiday to the test with these Halloween questions and answers at your next Halloween bash.
