The time period from about the middle of September until October 31st is what I like to call “Halloween season”. It’s the time where we start planning our costumes, pumpkin carvings, and (of course) spooky house decorations. It does take quite a bit of preparation and planning, but I use Kik to help me out with all my Halloween planning, from parties all the way to costumes. Check out this article to learn about how Kik can help you prepare for Halloween.

What is Kik?
Before we get into how Kik can help you out with Halloween, we should quickly go over what Kik is. Now we have extensive articles about what Kik is (which you can find here), so I won’t go into serious detail here. Kik is an online messaging app that allows you to connect with millions of users around the globe. You can do way more on Kik than just simply instant message, you can:
- Group chat
- Play Kik games with your friends
- Chat with Kik bots and companies
- Meet new people
- Send media
- Use emojis and stickers that can perfectly convey your mood
Kik is a great app to use to not only talking to your friends, but also with new people you meet. Now you should always be careful when meeting strangers online, so make sure you follow these guidelines:
- NEVER give any of your personal information away
- Don’t share your location with strangers
- Be careful about who you send pictures to and what kind of pictures you are sending
- Don’t give your username and password to people you do not know
- Do not meet up with people you don’t know or trust
Now being safe is really about using common sense and staying on guard. No matter where you go on the Internet you may come across some serious creepers, so be safe and keep your guard up.
You can download Kik for your iOS device, android device, and even a PC or Mac (you can find out how here).
You can check out more about Kik, and download Kik at their website here. On their website you can learn more about their Kik Bots, any questions you may have, and can even read their blog to learn all about them.
Kik and Halloween
No, I’m not crazy when I say that Kik can help you out with Halloween. Here are some cool ways you can use Kik to help you spooky prep:
Kik Bots are a great, and unique, feature that Kik has that you can utilize. We have gone pretty in depth into Kik Bots before (which you can find here) so we will just shortly cover this. Kik Bots are automated AI bots that you can start a chat with that can connect you to companies and games. People can also make their own bots that you can chat with, so you aren’t just limited to company bots. These bots can help you set up bedrooms, plan parties, tell you jokes, or can even tell you the news and weather.
So how can these bots help you prepare for Halloween? Well with chat bots you can get Halloween emojis, and even talk to bots to help you set up Halloween parties. All you need to do is do a search in the Kik Bot Shop (found here) for whatever it is you are looking for. Kik Bots also allow you to play spooky games with friends, so check them out!
If you are planning a party you probably need friends to come over for that party. Well by using group chat in Kik you can easily get everyone on the same page so everyone knows what to bring and what time your party starts. Sure, this section may not be exciting but it is important to plan with friends. Right?
Here is something we haven’t talked about for a while; Kik parties. Y’all remember what Kik parties are? I will just give y’all a reminder (you can read all about them here). A Kik party is a very popular, and large, group text that has an actual start time and has 1 or 2 hosts (or admins). Many times people can virtually hang out and meet new friends. Many Kik parties have a Kik Code so people can quickly, and easily, find your party.
These parties are often themed (like real life parties) so that means you can either find an awesome Halloween themed party or you can create your own themed Kik party. Here are some themes you might want to think about:
- Jack o Lantern
- Hocus Pocus
- Nightmare Before Christmas
- Day of The Dead
Obviously there are way more themes you can do for your Kik party, but these are just a few of our favorites.
What do you do with those themes? Well you can start conversations with the theme, and tailor your stickers and emojis to that specific theme. Another idea is to exchange themed GIFs, which is my personal favorite.
Getting Into the Halloween Mood
Kik can also help you simply get into the Halloween mood. They feature many ways to communicate with your friends, so why not send get in the mood? Send spooky pictures, emojis, stickers, and even GIFs to help you mentally prep. To be honest with y’all I get into the Halloween about halfway through September because Halloween is my favorite holiday. But Kik helps me spread my Halloween cheer with all my unsuspecting friends.
As you can see there are a lot of ways the Kik can help you prepare for Halloween. You can create a group chat so you can chat with your friends to help plan your Halloween party, or you can do your very own Kik party with a spooky Halloween theme. Kik can also get your into the Halloween spirit by enabling you to use spooky emojis, pictures, stickers, and GIFs. So, give Kik a chance to help you thoroughly enjoy Halloween.
