Boo! Jack the Halloween Czar returns for a magical spooky time in New Horizons! Halloween is October 31st, and the event runs from 5pm to midnight! Between October 1st and October 31st, stock up on candy from Nook's Cranny. You can only buy one piece each day at 120 bells each. Make sure you get your costume! In addition, Leif and Nook's Cranny will be selling pumpkin seeds that can only be bought in October. You will need to plant and harvest pumpkins in order to be able to craft the new gourd-ous items.
You will not know what color pumpkins you will get until they are fully grown. The options are: Orange | Green | White | Yellow
You'll need one of every color if you want to customize any of your Spooky furniture! We list all the requirements for each new DIY later in this guide.
Spooky Changes Around the Island

Jack has finally arrived! Speak to him to start off the terror-ific evening! Jack will start off asking you to complete some...delicious tasks for him that involve collecting candy, and then lollipops in order to finish your Spooky Furniture collection!
Only on Halloween will you be able to unlock two new reactions. These can be given to you by giving either Jack or your villagers a piece of candy Use these new reactions to scare your villagers silly!
Your villagers will approach you asking for candy, so make sure you have plenty! If you don't agree to hand over the succulent treats....you're in for a trick! Not giving up candy will result in your villagers changing your face/body paint to a different color and give you a custom face design! Your villager will tell you not to worry you can change back, and can possibly give you a mirror. If you give up your treats, you have a chance of getting one of the below items or DIY recipes, as well as possible some pumpkins! If you're lucky, you will receive a lollipop for Jack.
- You can visit your friend's islands and buy more candy if one a day isn't enough for you! - If you enter a villager's home wearing a costume during Halloween night, they will give you a piece of candy! - If you walk around wearing Jack's robe and face, you can trick your villagers into handing over their candy! - If you visit Nook's Cranny starting 10/28...Timmy and Tommy will be dressed up and ready to celebrate!
