i love love love love LOVE halloween. have some fab info on traditions in victorian england and other stuff regarding origins and stuff.
this is how my year goes:
my bday is next week. the day after my bday, i get out the fall decor and do inside. then vernal equinox all fall goes up. oct 1 i start thinking about halloween. what will i wear? party or no party? i collect wind up halloween stuff so i start getting them out to play with.the week b4 halloween the halloween stuff gets added to the regular fall stuff. the day after halloween, spooky stuff goes back in storage and i start thinkin about thanksgiving menu (tho i will admit that i have already figured out most of it). i spend the week b4 t-day putting up the lights outside so i can officially throw the switch t-day night. then on friday, i start doing the inside. i tend to have open house dec1- jan 1. friends know... if the lights are on, the eggnog is ready and waiting! i dont do dec 25th. i do the month! much more fun that way!!!!
i spend the rest of the year til my bday crafting and stuff and contemplating gifts for loved ones.
