Remind me when Halloween became such a big holiday. I remember when I was a kid we would dress up and hit the candy trail. Now it's like a national holiday with its own batch of decorations and costumes to beat the band. A friend recently moved to the suburbs and she is in awe of the decorations and what feels like a competition on her block for the most spider webs and other ghoul-like designs! I have a great collection of costumes that I made for my boys over the years and I was oh so happy to loan her the "ear of corn" costume for her 18-month-old son.
