It turns out that not only were many of their celebrations company-wide, they also inspired clever ways to promote the holiday through special content on or enabled by their Websites.

But even without a specific Halloween function, many Websites are giving the holiday a fun nod through design. Smashing Magazine got knee-deep in Halloween action by asking readers to design a holiday logo for the website.
