It's Beginning to Look A lot Like Halloween
When I was a kid, my mother never let me decorate for Halloween until it was 2 weeks before Halloween. She would see Halloween decorations out at the end of September and roll her eyes like the stores had lost their mind for putting Halloween decoration out for sale so early. Times have changed. Everywhere I go I see the signs of my favorite holiday. Old Time Pottery Barn has aisles of Halloween decorations and Cracker Barrel glows with a ghoulish light. Ghosts haunt the dollar store and all the small corners of stores are beginning to whisper of phantoms and hauntings. It is already beginning to look like Halloween. Here are a few samples of the Halloween toys I've seen out so far.
