* A few days after the Sole Survivor wakes up in ''{{VideoGame/Fallout 4}}'', on October 31, Diamond City will be decorated with Halloween decorations, and guards will complain about having to work on Halloween. Also, given that the nuclear apocalypse occured a few days before Halloween (October 23), many locations around the Commonwealth will have Halloween decorations up, especially if they have been untouched since the bombs fell (a detail curiously ignored in the previous games).

Today, Halloween is considered a major holiday in the US, Canada, Mexico (where it has a more Catholic bent, as it falls right before the ''Día de los Muertos'' celebrations), and the British Isles (where it is more strongly influenced by the older traditions, particularly in Ireland, Scotland, Northern England and Wales). It has also caught on in mainland Europe, India, the Philippines, and Japan through exposure to American media. Australians are coming under the influence of Halloween due to increasing Americanization but many reject it due to having nothing to do with Celtic-Australian culture and the heavy commercialization has come under scrutiny. Christians in some parts of the world ignore the commercialized variety, considering Halloween separate from All Saint's Day. They visit cemeteries to pray and place flowers and candles on the graves of their loved ones.

The roots of what we now know as Halloween are descended from two holidays: the Catholic celebration of All Saints' Day, and the Celtic pagan festival of Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"), a time when spiritual power heightened, which marked the last harvest, the end of foraging for livestock, and the beginning of winter. "Halloween" is short for All Hallows' Eve, the evening before All Saints' Day. Originally, in the seventh century, it was celebrated in May or April, right after Easter. A few centuries later, All Saints' Day was shifted to November, a change that originated in Germany before spreading through the Roman Catholic world. The Orthodox churches continue to celebrate it in April, as did the Irish for a time, as Celtic mythology also held it to be the day when the barrier between the mortal and spirit realms grew thin, as they wanted to keep the holiday free from such associations.

* ''Sonic Adventure 2'' features Pumpkin Hill as a playable level for Knuckles. As the name suggests, it's a cutesy-horror themed stage with landmarks such as graveyards, churches, and , of course, mountains shaped like jack-o-lanterns. One of Shadow's (few) stages, Sky Rail, also takes place in Pumpkin Hill, but in daylight; a less demonic appeal.
