CHICAGO — As summer continues to grace us with blazing hot days, many of us are counting down to the arrival of Spooky Season.
But when does Spooky Season officially begin?
July 5 is when members of the Halloween community mark the official start of Spooky Season.
Why? Because the Fourth of July is the last major commercialized holiday on store shelves before they transition to fall harvest and Halloween merchandise.
Regular people would probably think that’s too soon, opting instead to start their decorating on Oct. 1 or Sept. 1. Some choose the first day of autumn in late September.
Regardless of when you celebrate, remember there’s a spirited community keeping the Halloween spirit alive year-round. Embrace the ghoulish delights!
