A Vintage Halloween

We're in the midst of Autumn now, and one of the first celebrations we have is Halloween. Originally begun as All Hallows' Eve to remember those who had passed away and to celebrate the Saints, today we celebrate by dressing up in scary costumes, trick or treating and apple bobbing.
The famous carved pumpkins or jack o'lanterns would have traditionally been a carved turnip in Britain, with North American migrants choosing to use the more commonplace pumpkin.
Here we have some perfect vintage ways to spend your Halloween night on the 31st.

Why not watch a classic horror film from the age of Golden Hollywood
 like Dracula, Frankenstein or The Wolf Man
