Facebook conjured up some Halloween tricks and treats for Facebook Stories.

The social network is testing a Halloween Story feature, which has the same 24-hour shelf life that traditional Facebook Stories do, but is separate from users’ personal Stories, although they will be able to upload photos and videos to both of them.

On Oct. 31, people may see prompts in their News Feeds alerting them about the Halloween Story, and if any of their friends have added to the Halloween Story, it will appear atop their News Feed alongside traditional Stories.
