The Bidens celebrate Halloween at the White House

STORY: The Bidens, who were joined by their family members such as daughter Naomi, briefly met the kids, handed out candy, waved and offered words of encouragement.

The South Portico of the White House was decorated with fall colors, pumpkins, various shades of autumn, and songs such as "Ring of Fire," "Psycho" and "Hall of the Mountain King" set the mood.

Halloween has been celebrated at the White House since the mid-20th century, according to the White House Historical Association.
