"Halloween" defined [Nov. 1st, 2010|09:23 pm]
Nicodemus
When is "Halloween"? When does Halloween really begin?

I've come to realize that there's a sliding scale:
Kid6:00pm 10/31, when your parents let you start trick-or-treating
Teenager9:00pm 10/31, when the party starts
Adult8:00am 10/31, when you need to start preparing for the day
Stores10/1, as soon as it's October and no longer "back to school"
Fabric StoresJuly.

In my area, stores started to put out Halloween decorations in late August. Christmas decorations began to arrive in mid-October; candy and costumes were already discounted during the week before October 31st.
