Spooky Skype-o-ween

As one of the world’s oldest holidays, Halloween is a celebrated tradition for people around the globe. From carving pumpkins and bobbing for apples to getting decked out in a scary costume for trick-or-treating, October 31st is a highly anticipated day every year! When we saw a story in The Wall Street Journal about a well-known pumpkin carver who provides Halloween pumpkin carving lessons via Skype video call we wondered: what are the different ways people can use Skype this Halloween?

If you haven’t carved your pumpkin yet, or even know how, why not virtually connect with a friend with Skype video call to do it together? Just prop your laptop next to you and chat with your friend as you compete for the best carved pumpkin! Once your pumpkin is all set and you are about to hit the streets in your costume, why not use Skype video calling on your iPad, computer, or Skype-enabled TV to show your faraway grandparents and relatives your full costume?

If you’re in a hurry, Skype video calling for iPhone and Android make it easy to show off your Halloween get-up while running from door to door gathering holiday goodies! For fun, Qik Video Connect for Android and iPhone will allow you to record spooky Halloween video mail to send your friends and family for the next time they check their messages. Better yet, you can post the videos to your Facebook or Twitter pages to share with even more of your friends! Lastly, if you can’t make it to your friends Halloween bash, Skype Group Video Calling can help you have a virtual Halloween party with up to 9 other friends, so this year, make sure you celebrate October 31st with your favorites – no matter the distance.

How are you celebrating Halloween with friends and family from afar this year? Leave a comment and let us know.
