Fall has descended on Michigan. The leaves are falling and everyone is sipping apple cider and PSL's. Halloween is near and it's time to decorate Mid Michigan. Check out these Mid Michigan retailers to get some scary decorations.

BOO! Why do we celebrate Halloween?

Let's get familiar with this commercial holiday, so we think. Britannica tells the story:

Halloween’s origins can be traced back to the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain, which was held on November 1 in contemporary calendars. It was believed that on that day, the souls of the dead returned to their homes, so people dressed in costumes and lit bonfires to ward off spirits.

The Halloween decorating has begun at our house. For the past few years we've been renting and we are stoked to be putting up the decor for our neighbors to enjoy. Stores in Mid Michigan have had Halloween stuff for months. You better shop now because inventory at some stores is running low and might be out of stock by the time you get there.
