October 31, Animal Crossing: New Horizons Organize your own Halloween events in the game.
From 5 pm to midnight, players can dress up and get candies from the villagers, or distribute candies to the villagers for sweet seasonal rewards.
Jack, the czar, who calls himself Halloween, will be found near the residents’ service center on your island, and he will help you start the event.
How to get candy
There are many ways to get Candy. Throughout October, every character on the island can buy a Candy from Cranny in Nook every day.
If Halloween is coming and you need more candies, you can put on a Halloween costume and buy it from the villagers in the house. Please note that the villagers running around outside will ask for candies, but the villagers running around inside will give out candies.
How to get exclusive Halloween DIY recipes and items
Villagers will randomly provide DIY recipes, lollipops and Halloween-themed furniture in exchange for Candy. As you walk around the island, you will see dressed-up villagers rushing towards you for sweets. As long as you pay some, you can get rewards.
Giving candy to the villagers is the only way to get recipes for “Weird Garland” and “Weird Table Setting”. This is also the only way to get “weird wall”, “weird floor” and “weird carpet” furniture.
Please note that what you get from the villagers is random, so it may take a few tries to get what you need.
You can only get the DIY recipes for ghost sticks and ghost cars by giving lollipops to Jack.
How to get a Halloween reaction
You can catch two Halloween reactions. You can get the first Haunt by sending Candy to Jack. By gifting Candy to one of your villagers, you will get a second Scare.
