22 more days until Halloween. I had my Halloween decorations up in September. I've gone from early decorating to one year I didn't decorate for any of the holidays at all. This will be my 3rd year as a Halloween witch for The Darling Inn where I live. The first year I gave out candy it was from this huge steel bowl. We had around 180 kids that came through. It was a blast. I love the way The Darling Inn hosts holiday events. Sheer Sensations which is on my block hosts a free Thanksgiving dinner. We decorate down in the Common Room for Christmas which is so pretty with the Christmas tree and sparkling lights. It makes for a very festive time.
A friend of mine hooked me up with soaps with Christmas festive cloth for homemade gifts. I dug through my boxes in my hallway finding Halloween paper wrapping homemade soaps. I made gifts for my grandsons with candy goodies putting in two sturdy paper Patriot Cups for my son who even though he has moved from the New England area still is a big fan. My daughter and her boyfriend, I put in two skeleton shot glasses, candy, and a homemade Halloween printed card. I can't wait for them to get their presents. Christmas I'm sending more little wrapped soaps with Vermont specialty food items. January is my son's birthday. I certainly love this time of year.
