Happy Halloween, all!

After Hurricane Sandy barreled up the East Coast and left many without power, it might be easy to forget October 31 is the official day designated for trick-or-treating. But not to worry: Google’s got you covered.

The latest doodle to grace the search engine’s homepage celebrates Halloween with an interactive, spooky neighborhood scene. Five doors line a leaf-blown street that's decorated with pumpkins and a moving skeleton, which invites visitors to click around for some ghoulish fun.

Move your mouse throughout the doodle to hear all the Halloween-inspired noises, and don’t forget to click on objects (like the hanging spider!) to see what happens.

This year’s cartoon might not trump the Google's memorable Halloween 2011 video, with its gigantic pumpkins, but it’s still worth checking out.

According to the company’s website, the concept of a Google doodle was first introduced in 1998. Since then many enjoyable drawings and interactive games have celebrated historical events, holidays and birthdays. For the full collection of dazzling doodles, click here.
