Halloween is almost upon us, which means this weekend will be filled with Halloween parties and last-minute costume preparations for the big day. As they have since 2010, Foursquare is again offering special new badges for Halloween revelers.
The first badge is the standard Halloween 2012 badge. You can earn it by including “Happy Halloween” along with your check-in. If you’re hitting up a Halloween party or other big nighttime gathering, you’ll be able to earn the Spooky Swarm badge by checking in along with at least 10 other people (UPDATE: This badge appears to be US only).
Since Halloween falls on a school night this year, Foursquare is also launching a special edition of the School Night badge to honor those late night Halloween revelers. Called “Ghoul Night” you can earn it with a Halloween-themed shout on Halloween night (after 7 pm local time).
Foursquare typically stays away from releasing badges for holidays since most are tied to religious events or only take place in one country, but Halloween is fair game since it’s not a religious holiday and is celebrated worldwide. Foursquare previously released similar badges for Halloween in 2010 and 2011.
Do you have plans to hit a big Halloween event this weekend? Which year’s badges are your favorites?
