6 Spooky Things You Can Do To Celebrate Halloween At Home

Although Halloween falls within the Philippines’ 4-month-long Christmas season, it’s still an event that we celebrate with friends and family. Traditions included going home to our provinces, spending time in cemeteries with departed loved ones, and watching horror-themed television shows. However, due to the pandemic, these traditions seemed to have halted. Despite the dwindling COVID-19 cases, there are still people who fear contracting the virus. So, celebrating Halloween in the comfort of our own homes has become one of the best things to do.
