You know it's Halloween when...
Unlike Christmas, that starts MONTHS earlier each year, Halloween only really comes into full affect the last 3 weeks of October. Around this time there are certain tell-tale signs that it’s almost here! I’ve put together a list of 4 classic things that only happen around Halloween, but we’d love to hear what other items, events, or activities you enjoy this time of year.
You know it’s the creepiest time of year when all you find on television is “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”, “Halloween” (the movies… I believe there are 10 now?), all the Halloween baking shows you could dream of on The Food Network, and, of course, “Hocus Pocus”.
Obviously, there are TONS of candy available at this time but there are certain staples that tend to appear only in October like Popcorn Balls, Candied Caramel Apples, and the ever popular (yet, often despised) candy corn.
While this time of year doesn’t have a large offering of music, like Christmas or even St. Patrick’s Day, there are a few classics that you’ll hear on the radio more. “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker, Jr., and the “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers.
Yard Display/House Decorations:
There are many routes you can take when it comes to decorating your house or yard for Halloween. The safe route: simple carved pumpkins on your doorstep. The little scary route: grave stones and some ghosts hanging from the trees. The extremely scary: Turn your entire house into a spooky graveyard and invite the neighborhood kids to tour thru while you play spooky music and throw surprises at every turn.
