The holiday of candy, costumes, crazily scaring people — and best of all, PUMPKINS!!! is upon us — and you should be celebrating! Not all of us get to dress up to the nines and beg for candy anymore, but that doesn't mean your phone can't get a cute costume, too! There are lots of ways to theme dress up a phone without getting tacky cases, and that's why we're bringing you a variety of sweet and simple wallpapers that remind us that not only is Halloween here, but it's for more than just horror shows. Here are the sweetest and spookiest Halloween wallpapers for your Android phone to dress up with.

Tricks and treats

Halloween is one of the spookiest times of the year, but it doesn't have to be. The holiday is fun, bright, and full of great iconography, so the right decorations are paramount. Of course, you can decorate your home, but you can also dress up your Android with festive Halloween wallpaper.

The more nostalgic pumpkin wallpapers like those found in Tapet (opens in new tab) and DeviantArt are always fun to see, but after a while, you start to get an itch for something a little more refined evil and a little less trick-or-treaty. I was impressed at how many of the word wallpapers in WallCandy made me laugh before instantly setting them as my own wallpaper.

Backdrops (opens in new tab) has a great variety of creepy, creepy wallpapers, too. And once Nov. 1 rolls around, it features plenty of Christmas wallpapers to switch over to, because unless you're a massive Nightmare Before Christmas fan, your Halloween wallpaper won't last long into November.
