In the tradition of the old Christmas stop-motion shows from the 1960s, Tim Burton created "The Nightmare Before Christmas". Like the old shows, it's also part musical. The opening song for the film is what I hear in my thoughts as I roam the aisles of holiday decorations in the stores in October.


I bought lights this year, and I put them up tonight for a test. I figure I'll slowly add to the collection each year, growing it slowly as I learn what's easy to work with and adds consistently to the mood of the place.

Halloween 2016 lights

I even have a pumpkin patch in the front yard, although I think I'll have to pull the pumpkins for indoor storage.  One or two has already wandered off, and I want to have plenty for the pumpkin carving party on our block that's been suggested by our block leader for the local kids.  I wish I knew how many trick-or-treaters to expect, so I could plan for the candy loot bag.  All I got from the neighbors during National Night Out was "medium" traffic, whatever that means?
