Just about every retailer these days stakes a claim in the Halloween business.
You can find costumes, wigs, accessories, scary things, gross things and all things spooky at just about every store you venture into. I’m sure for parents on the go, this one-stop shop approach is convenient. But to me, it takes the anticipation and excitement out of the holiday.
The subject of homemade versus store-bought Halloween costumes came up when talking with friends this weekend, when one said her friend had planned to take her child to buy his costume that day.
