Before we start, let’s get a few things out of the way.
What is Halloween?
Halloween is a 30th October holiday celebrated in many countries in the world. It is believed to be the day when spirits/ souls of the dead come back to the human realm.
What’s the origin of the Halloween Holiday?
The Halloween holiday is over 2,000 years old as it dates back to the ancient Celtic era. It’s got its roots in the pagan festival called Samhain (pronounced /sah-win/). During this festival, the Celtic people would celebrate their new harvest and the beginning of a New Year at the end of summer.
What are the best Disney Halloween Décor Ideas?

Or you can just cut off the top of an orange pumpkin, clean out all of the pumpkin guts, place your LED in there, screw on your battery pack on the backside, plug in your lights into an outlet, and voila!
