Countries around the world celebrate Halloween in different ways. In the U.S., October 31 is a blast for both children and adults. Kids dress up as their favorite characters, have parties at school, and end the day by going door-to-door in their neighborhood collecting candy (known as trick-or-treating).
Adults join in on the fun by dressing up too, and major kudos go to the most clever costumes. We don't go trick-or-treating but somehow still end up with loads of candy. And no matter how hard we try to get rid of it all, the candy lasts for weeks. We'll complain, but we all know it's the best part of the holiday.
Well, there's another really awesome plus: shopping. Top retailers around the world will offer a fantastic selection of Halloween decorations and costumes, and you can easily access them all with your Borderlinx forwarding addresses.
We suggest starting your holiday shopping with these retailers due to their variety and special offers.
