October 31st comes around only once every year, and for many, wish it could be more than just one day.  With Christmas, we get to enjoy the holiday festivities a lot longer, but Halloween has more retail sales than good ole St. Nick!  Yes, that is a shocker to some, but for those who go all out for this batty holiday, they know it’s true! 

So, what do you think Halloween is all about? 

  1. Is it about how much candy your kids can con out of your neighbors down the road?
  2. Is it about how much you dread all of those trick-or-treaters coming to your house even though your front porch light is turned off?
  3. Is it about the numerous hours you spend dragging out of storage all of your Halloween decorations?
  4. Is it about trying to finally carve a pumpkin that looks like it was not hacked up by Jason Voorhees?
  5. Is it about working so long & hard to get that $1 bag of spider web out of the bag and onto your front bushes to only have a strong wind come by and ruin it?
  6. Is it about setting up your own home haunt & tombstones on your front yard with all kinds of colored flood lights to only blow a fuse?
  7. Is it about every year trying to figure out how to keep those styrofoam tombstones from falling down & blowing away with the high winds? 
  8. Is it about “always” finding out that you don’t have enough extension cords for the flood lights & have to run back to the store…again?
  9. Is it about finding out that your flood light sockets are not waterproof and they explode from the rain?
  10. Is it about dressing your pet up in yet another costume to make them look cute, yet all they do is fight to get it off?
  11. Is it about how embarrassed you are when you find out you did not buy enough candy & trick-or-treating has an hour left?
  12. Is it about how you work all day setting up your home haunt for the “witching hour” that lasts only two hours, then dreading how long it is going to take you to put everything away…in the dark?
  13. Is it about setting up your really awesome animatronic prop only to find out that you misplaced your AC Adapter?
  14. Is it about waking up on November 1st only to find that kids have smashed your pumpkins all over your yard?
  15. Is it about running out of fog juice for your fog machine? (now that sucks)
  16. Is it about finding out that your neighbor is delivering jello shots to all the parents on the street?
  17. Is it about finding out that your neighbors dog DOES NOT like you dressed up in a scary costume & wants to bite you?
  18. Is it about blowing a fuse on your Gemmy Light Show right in the middle of trick-or-treating and your whole yard goes dark? (how embarrassing
  19. Is it about finding out that the deer ate your bales of straw that you were going to use on Halloween?
  20. Is it about finding out that you did not shop early enough for your props and all the good stuff is gone?

No matter what you may think about Halloween, the time involved, the set backs, the lack of candy or burnt fuses, YOU still can make it all happen and turn out your own spectacular home haunt.  Happy Haunting & remember to shop early to get the best deals on your props before they are picked over.
