We used to go all out complete with someone hiding behind the bushes to scare the kids after they got their candy. We toned it down the last few years but I still do enjoy handing out candy and seeing all the costumes.
I went to buy a few Halloween decorations about the middle of September and was really shocked to see Christmas decorations already out in the stores. Amazing! Retailers are out to get as many dollars as they can. I do like Halloween and decorate just enough to let the kids know they can trick or treat at my house.
