Halloween is an annual holiday which can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. It is believed that during the 31st of October, spirits roam the earth and cause trouble and misfortune. To ward off these ghosts, people observed practices like wearing costumes and lighting bonfires. As time flew, what once was a cold and dark occasion became associated with "play parties," a public celebration that included singing, dancing, and even fortune telling.

Over the years, Halloween celebrations evolved until the occasion became a holiday with parties for children and adults. In the present day, people would even put up Halloween decorations at home to celebrate the event, just like they do in Christmas! Halloween decorations this 2019 can swing anywhere from cutesy fantasy to straight-up horror. If you are planning to decorate your house this season, take a look at these Halloween decorations this 2019 that are sure to send tingles down your spine!
