Is it too soon to plan for Halloween for next year?

    No, it’s never too soon. It’s like planning for Christmas a few days after Christmas. People have Christmas funds they start a few days after so they can have money for presents, wrapping paper, decorations, cards, dinner, etc. (of course for most they dip into their Christmas funds during the year to pay for bills so they have fresh bills from the Christmas spending to pay for). Believe it or not there are folks who have Halloween funds for the purpose of buying costumes, candy, and decorations.

    People also begin planning their Halloween displays and even making a costume instead of buying one. Just like after Christmas, items for Halloween are cheaper after Halloween so if they can be found things like tombstones and coffins are much easier to pick up for far less than normal. Even the pre-Halloween sales can pale in comparison. That $2.50 to $5 styrofoam tombstone which is maybe going for 50% just before Halloween could be going for 75% to 90% off after. So you could be buying it for 63¢ or as cheap as 25¢ after Halloween if you can find it. Imagine finding ten tombstones for twenty-five cents and you’ve still got five left over from the Halloween that’s just happened, you’ve already got fifteen tombstones by the time Halloween decorations go back on sale, you could get a few more to have a fairly large cemetary in your yard. And it’s not just tombstones, all Halloween decorations are going to be much cheaper. Maybe you drooled over the anamatronic vampire statue but at $95 dollars you couldn’t bring yourself to buy it. But at 75% off it’s now running you $23.75. Now you can get it and put it away for next year.

    Or maybe you’re the do-it-yourself kind who likes to make all you’re decorations rather than buying them. Maybe you can make six tombstones out of a a $12 styrofoam sheet and $4 can of paint or ten to fourteen tombstones out of a sheet of plywood. Or you could build a coffin out of plywood and use it for storing stuff in until Halloween. Might also build a scaffolding for hanging a dummy from. Or maybe get a recipe for monster mud and make your own Halloween statues out of chicken wire, burlap, and monster mud (and paint). DIY takes time to do, so you might start planning that DIY Halloween project now and start working on it months before Halloween. But in the case of tombstones you’ll get the looks you want, not what some manufacturer makes.

    Yes.

    It depends on what you want to do.

    If you are planning a party then no. By starting now you can let your friends know that you will be having a party and they are to keep the date free. Also if you are a bit low on cash you can start buying items for the party week by week.

    For a costume – depends on how much effort you want to put into it. If you are a person who wants to work out every detail then start now. If not, then yes it’s a bit early.

    If you want it "everyday"-have your walls black, & skull-heads,-etc all over all year round….(my "single yrs-my bedroom was like that w/posters…)
