    You better hope you don't see a bat in the house on Halloween. If you do, it means there's probably an evil spirit lurking somewhere nearby.

  • Hearing footsteps behind

    By Halloween Eve

    This would be pretty scary on any night, but if you hear mysterious footsteps behind you on Halloween, it means death is following you. Don't look it in the eye!

  • Halloween babies

    People born on Halloween are said to possess certain gifts. Including the gift to ward away demons, ghosts and evil spirits.

  • Looking for spiders

    By Halloween Eve

    Spotting a spider in the house is a more positive sign than seeing a bat. It is said that spiders represent your dead loved ones watching over you.

  • Jack-o-lantern

    The candle burning inside isn't just to illuminate the carving. Superstition has it that burning candles inside the lantern keep the spirits at bay.

  • Light my fire

    By Halloween Eve

    According to English folklore, leaving a fire to go out on Halloween is very bad luck. To counter this, it is suggested that you light it again using a sod acquired from a priest's home. Easy enough?

  • Bread in the pocket
