Halloween Is Moving Up

Today I needed to take a trip to Wal-Mart to pick up a few needed items. In order to miss a lot of people I decided to arrive later to avoid a possible crowd of people

When I arrived at Wal-Mart I found a lot of people there. If I didn’t know any better I would have thought it was either Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. It was neither of those holidays. The crowd was buying Halloween costumes and goodies for school parties and trick or treaters visiting homes tomorrow.

I remember when Halloween wasn’t such a big deal years ago. As years have gone by it has crept up in competition with Thanksgiving and Christmas. Stores go all out with the decorations now when the only thing they use to do was increase their stock of candy.

Maybe it’s because of all the gory, scary movies that have been produced in recent years.

What is your take on the explosion of Halloween?
