HALLOWEEN: The 2014 Mood Table

Several years ago, the great Dinosaur Dracula website came up with the idea of putting up a Mood Table for Halloween, setting a little space aside in the room for your Halloween spirit to keep you going until the big day. Basically, it's like a Christmas Tree, but for Halloween, which, once again, is the better holiday.

The problem with holiday spirit is that Becca and I both come from a retail background, and working in retail is a very good way to have your enjoyment of holidays ruined for much of your life. When you're getting Christmas stock in August, it rather dulls the day itself, because it's been nothing but a gigantic headache for months.

Well, Becca has been out of retail long enough to get excited about things like Halloween and Christmas again, so she decided the other night that a Mood Table was in order. This is our first, and I think it's going to end up being a tradition to make it more Halloween-y in here.

(Note to self: go buy cheap, discounted Halloween decorations on November 1st for next year...)

Really dig your Medusa head. Great display.

The Medusa head was a clearance item from last year; Becca brought it home and was so thrilled to get it.
