Halloween Around The World


The popular autumn holiday Halloween is just around the corner and countries around the world are celebrating with festivals, traditions and more.  Find out about the best Halloween activities in your next destination by car rental.

What is Halloween exactly?  Growing up in Kentucky, USA, Halloween was a celebration of autumn that combined all things spooky and haunted with the fall harvest, pumpkin carving, and costume parties.  Modern Halloween in my home town is huge throughout the month of October, with various parties for all ages, safe trick-or-treating for children held at the Louisville Zoo, a myriad of haunted houses (with some serious ones only for the 18 and over crowd), and fall harvest fun at local farms such as Huber's in nearby Indiana.  

However, Halloween and the traditions it includes can vary greatly and you might be in for an entirely different experience depending where you rent a car this October.  Wikipedia's page on Halloween around the world can give you a good idea of what to expect if you will be celebrating somewhere new this year.  

Finding a Halloween activity isn't just a factor of your car rental location, but your travel companions.  If you're in a 7 seater car hire with a group of kiddies then you will want to check out the list of activities around the world from  This is the place to find family friendly things to do in the holiday spirit, like corn mazes and hayrides.  Adults looking for a nighttime thrill without the kiddies will want to hit a haunted house.  One place to begin is with the Haunted House Association's list of haunted houses throughout the United States, Canada, and a few international spots.  

Good luck and happy hauntings.
