Halloween is on October 31 in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. During Halloween, you can get lollipops and candy from villagers, which you can exchange with Jack for rare Spooky or Creepy furniture.


During October, Labelle sells Halloween masks, and the Nooklings sell Spooky Set furniture. On Halloween, between 6PM and midnight, you can play mini-games with villagers outside, scare villagers in their homes, and talk to Jack, who is wandering around town, for a chance to get candy and rare items.


When your villagers play tricks on you, they can permanently turn your items into other items! Be sure to either empty your pockets, or fill your pockets with things that you don't mind losing, and be sure to wear an outfit that you don't mind losing!

How to Get Candy and Other Items

You can get candy and items from villagers and from Jack on Halloween. Outdoor villagers will give you candy if you win their mini-games, and indoor villagers will give you candy if you scare them. Jack will give you items in exchange for candy, and can give you an item if you don't give him candy when he asks. See the next sections for further details.

Items from Jack

During Halloween, Jack will be wandering around your town. You can give him candy to get Halloween-themed items (see the list below). Jack strongly prefers lollipops and will give you better items for them, but he will also give you items in exchange for regular candy. Also, you can talk to Jack while not carrying candy or wearing headgear (or refuse to give him candy) to get a pumpkin head mask.

Outdoor Villagers on Halloween

Villagers walking outside will be wearing pumpkin head masks of different colors, and they will try to run up to you if they see you. If you have candy in your pockets, you can choose "treat" to give these villagers candy and get a hint about what the other villagers are scared of (which you will find in the list below). If you don't have candy, or you choose "trick", you can play a mini-game with these villagers. If you win the minigame, the villager gives you candy. If you lose, the villager plays a trick on you, which might make one of your items be permanently replaced. Items you can get from villager pranks are a Pumpkin Mask, patched clothing items, old flooring/wallpaper, and a Jack-in-the-box. These cannot be reordered from the catalog. Wearing Halloween-themed headgear, or non-reorderable headgear, will make you get something other than a Pumpkin Mask. Wearing patched clothing, or non-reorderable clothing, will make you get something other than patched clothing. You can only get the Jack-in-the-box if your pockets are full. The Jack-in-the-box will permanently replace one of your items.

Indoor Villagers on Halloween

If you go into a villager's house and talk to them while wearing the correct mask, the villager will give you a lollipop, which you can give to other villagers or exchange with Jack to get Halloween-themed items. If you are wearing the wrong mask, the villager will prank you instead.

You can get one lollipop per indoor villager. Save and reset to change which villagers are in their houses. You can also visit friends' towns to get more lollipops.
