    Hello. So every year I grab more and more of those lighted pumpkins to the point where I have a good sized pumpkin patch that the kids really like. Time to make it a little evil and scary by combining it with my graveyard stuff. I wanted to add this from Home Depot but I didn't see it until...

  7. Questions about those window crasher ghosts?

    General Halloween
    I just came across these and looking to get one. Are there any specific brands you recommend? I see some for $10 then up to $80. Is there really a difference?
