The lights are on
You can download a free Halloween-themed texture pack for the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft, but only for a limited time.
The pack adds Halloween skins for your characters, as well lots of orange and green building blocks to make your very own terrifying haunted mansions. The pack will only be available until November 3, but once you download it, it will remain in your inventory.
You can head here to download the pack now.

Our TakeI like the idea of cosmetic DLC only being available for a certain period of time. It gives it a certain amount of rarity – even if it is free to download to everyone who has Minecraft.

I've gotten it already. It's a pretty cool pack. My cousin plays more Minecraft than I do so I'm sure he'll enjoy it. My cousin doesn't have an Xbox so he uses mine.

Already getting it :)
Yes! I get back to my Xbox the 1st so I'll have just enough time to download this. So pumped!
At least it's free! That's the best part of this! =)
Minecraft skins (and the fact that they charge money for them a lot of the time) seems totally preposterous to me. They take the concept of regular skins, which is already ridiculous to many, and makes it ten times worse. What's the point of a "special" 8 bit texture pack which you can barely distinguish from anything else?
I'm really enjoying this pack. It changes the fell of the game, which I do not get from the other packs because I refuse to pay money for things that should be free because they ARE free on the pc. I really enjoy the new feel, although I do not know if I will use it too long past Halloween. Probably will though ;).
