It finally occurred!! I caught my first glimpse of Halloween 2012!!
I had noted in a previous thread about 2 or 3 weeks ago that Hobby Lobby was setting out their Halloween items, but it's such a paltry selection (especially when compared to their Fall and Christmas stuff) that I don't consider it a true "sign" of Halloween arriving (they are always "first" anyway).
Instead, just a couple days ago, I was inside a local gas station, and they had just set up a little display stand showcasing this year's batch of "Halloween Reese's Cups"!! Oooh, so delicious. I immediately bought a couple, and I'm saving one of them...I need to take a picture and upload it: it's like a little slice of Fall.
I decorate more for the Fall than for Halloween, but I enjoy Halloween in the context of it harolding cooler weather, as a prelude to Christmas. Plus, I expect my local Walgreens to have decorations set up here by the end of the month!
So what's your first glimpse of Halloween?!?
