I love Halloween, it isa favorite time of year. I love spooky things, seeing kids in costumes, scary movies, decorating with haunted themes, haunted hayrides and houses.
Here are some fun Ideas I also came across"
1 How about having a pumpkin sitting next to you on your porch as you give out candy, with candy actually coming out of the mouth.
2 Scarecrows using pumpkin heads have, of course, been very popular for years, even in scary movies.
3 What fun have an art show! Have your children's friends or your family and neighbors carve and paint pumpkins. Have a kids section and a section of art adults have made, decorate your yard like an art galley, have a haunted house sign with "Welcome to the HalloweenGallery".

I love taking Photos
Leaf peeping is a free wonderful way to spend a fall day. Leaf peeping means to looking at or to taking photos of the fall foliage. Well that is today's definition, it actual goes back a ways to even before I was a kid. I do recall my father, while trying to get to an event, using leaf peeper to describe a very slow car in front of him. If you are taking a drive to look at the foliage I do recommend instead of driving slow pull over for a better view, it will also insure some safety for you and other drivers.
The best time to book autumn trips? Well, that would be hard to say, for some locations it would be a year in advance, but off the beaten track you can find things on short notice. Booking hotels for festivals, and even leaf peeping, can be difficult, but some still have places available up to August. I wouldn't wait to long to plan a trip to New England in the fall though. Festivals, tours, leaf peeping, Halloween haunted walks, there is just so much to do, what I would do is perhaps leaf peep during the day and then a festival in the afternoon or evening. Pack a picnic, peeping and festival entry is normally free, food and souvenirs is what will cost money. my favorite festival is Keene NH pumpkin fest they hold the longest record for pumpkins lit in a downtown. here is the keene
