For years I would decorate our house for the big night of ghost and goblins at the door. My front year was full of creatures, tombstones, and torches and I myself would be in costume in a stage of being “frozen still” with only the slightest movement when a younger ghost looked at me. The house reached a status of “Halloween Car loads” dumping kids at my stairway. Since then we have moved to a quieter area with very few goblins at the door on Oct 31st. We still have many of the yard tombstone and the creatures as well. Most of which we now have placed in the house.
The new 2013 survey of Halloween Hotspots has been released by Halloween retailers. The Top 5 U.S. Cities are San Francisco being #1. Others in top 5 include Philadelphia, Salem and Seattle. A breakdown of neighborhoods here has Wallingford (North Lake Union) and Loyal Heights (North area of Ballard) being the best for Tricks and Treats and Decorated homes. email@example.com
