How many of you love Halloween just as much as you do Christmas? I know quite a few who fit that category.

And maybe they're already way ahead of me on this.

For me, the traditions of Christmas--songs by Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, etc; pouring boiled custard from my grandmother's enormous old Hellman's mayonnaise jar; old movies--are just as potent as the FEEL of Halloween--crisp fall air, leaves on the ground, the gothic vibe, and yes, old movies.

Halloween decor can be such a blast, so why not add to it with a BRIGHT ORANGE CHRISTMAS TREE?

The one in the picture comes with lights but there's so much more you can do.

Drape some black tinsel all over it. Maybe you could add some purple "icicle" lights.

It won't be very long before all the Halloween decorations pop up in the stores. I've already starting seeing the candy.

It's a little early, but Happy Halloween.
