from TV to movies, and from restaurants to theaters - October is "Halloween Month" as everyone seems to be doing something that goes along with the spirit of that month-end holiday.
Halloween came early to Seattle as the Moore Theater staged the live version of "Carrie", the Stephen King classic.
And while you're at the store buying lots of candy, be sure to stop by the cereal aisle for General Mills annual October revival of Franken Berry and Count Chocula cereals. Plus this year General Mills is adding the return of Frute Brute, (not the new spelling) and Fruity Yummy Mummy.
Btw, I still prefer the old 70's TV commercials:
That's just a start - there's a ton of October related stuff happening all around me. Is this a reaction to Halloween becoming a holiday for adults?
We'll watch "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown", a whole bunch of Goose Bumps, and whatever else I can think of. There hasn't been a lot of animated Halloween stuff this year, Monsters University was like the closest thing.
Halloween is way less stressful for most adults. Sure kids will probably like Christmas more because of the presents. Christmas for most adults means longer work weeks and stress about finding gifts for everyone. Whereas Halloween is much more engaging and simple.
