But this unit is not just about vocabulary, you might even get some inspiration for your own Halloween Party with our pictures of scary costumestraditional Halloween games and pumpkin carvings.

Speaking of pumpkins, there are some really fun facts we would like to share with you. Did you know that 99% of the pumpkins that are sold end up as Jack O’ Lanterns? Carving pumpkins is even considered a sport by some Halloween fans. The record lies with Jerry Ayers of Baltimore, Ohio who carved a pumpkin in only 37 seconds! And last but not least, the biggest pumpkin was weighed in October 2004 at a pumpkin festival in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada: It tipped the scales at an impressive 1,446 pounds.
