Yahhhh! Magickbean and MadameHooch! Good to see you again.
You see, last year was "OKAY" --we had Halloween, and this is a good thing. But it was small! I think having a bigger Halloween this year is the plan. Maybe I mean bigger in spirit or bigger in ambition; last year I felt people in my area were holding back a bit, turnouts were small at the haunted houses and people seemed busy and distracted.
I put a little glass snowglobe in the window--it has bats instead of snow, and a cute jack-o-lantern. Signaling an early start to the Halloween thinking!
