Halloween Baskets

Is it that time of year again? Be careful! You don't want to take that wrong turn on that dark, deserted street. God knows what's down there. After all, this is the night when the monsters and spirits have the ability to frolic about just like us. You've heard the stories, right? There is but one night of the year when all bets are off. It's commonly known as Halloween. Are you prepared for a frightening evening of witches, ghouls, demons and ghosts? What am I babbling about? Of course you are. Regardless of the infinite tales you've heard about "All Hallows Eve," we all know that it's a wonderful night of trickery, sweets, and just plain old fun. In fact, many of us anticipate its arrival like no other. There's just something about a day when looking normal is out of the question. All I know is that on that spooky night when the little ones come a knocking, I like to be prepared with a plethora of candy, treats and Halloween baskets to please any tiny monster or ghoul.

Have you ever taken the time to create Halloween baskets? We love doing this sort of thing at my house. There's just something about getting into the holiday spirit. I believe that more people should try and do so. It really does make the occasion much more fun. A few years back my wife and I decided to do something a little more unique and creative on Halloween. This was the beginning of Halloween baskets for us. Now, just so you don't get the wrong idea, they're not anything fancy. In fact, their just inexpensive little Halloween baskets stuffed with candy. This way you give each and every trick-or-treater a variety of sweets. Trust me; the little ones love it. You surely remember what it was like back in the day when you went trick-or-treating. You'd get all fixed up in that perfect costume and head out with candy on the brain. From door to door you were always hoping for the absolute best treats around. I'm talking about the fancy Halloween baskets or the whole candy bars. Not the "fun size" either. I'm talking about the big ones. We all loved getting those. So are you ready to create some fun and exciting Halloween baskets this year? You know that special day will be rolling around soon. Whatever you do, don't be that ridiculous neighbor who passes out fruit or raisins.
