Halloween was always my favorite holiday, hands down- even thought it isn't quite a holiday, but a commercial celebration, it seemed the most geared towards kids. And, while I was the only child, our family still went all out in decor and theme to ensure anyone who dared stop by our house on Hallow's Ever (or any eve in October) was sure to get a good spook. Momma and I would raid the 'after Halloween' clearance bright and early every November 1st and stock up on inflatables, animatronics, and plenty of fake cobwebs for the following year. I recall our family's favorite decorations vividly because they were 1.) handmade and 2.) still in our family for display to this very year.
