In addition to human skeletons, animal skeletons also appeared, the two together, as if to see another world.

Bats usually only live in graves, caves, and abandoned buildings. In legends, witches and vampires can take the form of bats, and because blood-sucking bats are the only mammals that drink blood for survival, bats are often associated with death or evil rituals, so they are seen as symbols of evil.

In many cases, people regard spiders and spider webs as a symbol of weaving life. But on Halloween, they symbolize dark, scary places or long-forgotten haunted houses. Black spiders and spider webs spread on furniture to bring out the holiday spirit. Mirrors, desks, walls, all wrapped in spider webs, and a few creepy spiders hanging from the web, such a combination looks eerie and fun on Halloween.

Jack-O'-Lantern is a symbolic object to celebrate Halloween. Legend has it that a man named Jack was so mean that he could not enter heaven after death, and because he made fun of the devil he could not enter hell either, so he had to carry a lantern around until the day of judgment. The choice of pumpkin lanterns is not limited to the traditional orange, but can also use white, black, gold, and so on. The size of the shape, the greater the difference, the better the visual effect presented, and the feeling of weirdness comes out at once.
