No matter what the theme or décor, lights play a significant role in setting the mood. Halloween represents a change from the norm and embracing fear through fun and humour. Dim lighting through Jack-o-lanterns and other Halloween themed lights are the best Halloween motifs and create the gloomy environment suitable for Halloween.
