What's Halloween without a real Jack-O-Lantern that you hand-carved yourself? It's difficult to source a large pumpkin in Jakarta, but smaller ones are readily available at supermarkets like Grand Lucky or at online marketplaces like Tokopedia. Be sure to check the sizes properly when you order online so you know what you are buying. Smaller pumpkins are easier to carve and is easier to clean, and you still get to carve simple shapes so it's almost just as good as the large ones! Moreover, when you deal with small ones, you can do several pumpkins with ease.
There's an abundance of Halloween themed movies over the years, and some of them are especially made for kids.

Spooky-boos out there! For Halloween this year, why not make it extra special by decorating your entire home -inside and out- and spook the muggles next door (or anyone who dares to pass)! Creepy lights, skeletons, spiders, bats, and of course, the Jack-O-Lantern are not to be skipped.
