What's your first sign of Halloween 2012?!?

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?!?

Last night, The wife and I went to White marsh mall, MD, and Kirklands had their Halloween stuff out and I was loving it. I believe I may be going back there a pick up a couple of things later on. Also, Michaels Arts and Crafts has their Halloween stuff out, last weekend when I was there....

I live in a small south GA town and we are seeing signs of Pumpkin Patches! Also, some of the local stores are getting in their fall and halloween decor and I'm LOVING it!

Our first sign of Halloween this year was the huge temporary sign at the Mall for Spirit Halloween Store.
