It’s that ‘eeek’y, eerie time of year again.  Halloween is one of my favorite annual events, but our subscribers already know that it’s all about the candy for me.  The candy isn’t allowed on its own, however.  There have to be appropriate Halloween decorations and festivity to go with it.

Before we get to the goodies, here are a couple of Halloween trivia tidbits –

In 1898 the first company to mass produce candy corn was the Herman Goelitz Confectionery Company of Fairfield, California, now known as the Jelly Belly Candy Company.

In 1950 Philadelphia trick or treaters collected change for children overseas and sent it to Unicef.  Thus, the Trick or Treat for Unicef program is born.

Here are our favorite Halloween decorations for this year:

For the DIYers, decorate your pumpkins with these weather resistant vinyl decals – the moth and crows will look especially striking on a white pumpkin.   The moth is $3.00.

The single crow is $3.00.

Where to find a white pumpkin?  This one is 9” x 7” and $19.00.
