I guess I could share a bit more about myself! I grew up in a rural area, heavily wooded. Parents always threw a huge Halloween party in a big barn, complete with a haunted trail and tractor rides. It was always so magical, and that's how I first got hooked on Halloween. It's my favorite holiday (of course) and I usually start planning in June and put up first decorations in late September or October 1st. I watch scary movies and read horrors/thrillers year-round, just to keep in the spirit. I live in an apartment now but I still throw a Halloween party every year. To me, Halloween is all about being creative, getting scared, and laughing at the things that are supposed to scare us! It's all about not taking yourself too seriously.
