The Halloween season is almost here – the long-awaited time of year for many, and considered one of the most celebrated holidays in North America. Over the next week, you might notice your regularly traveled locations transforming into something different, and a little bit spooky! Haunted houses begin to pop up, farmers plow confusing routes through their corn fields and plant haunted scarecrows in order to attract people as opposed to dissuading birds away from their crops. Your neighbour’s lawn becomes a temporary graveyard, your local theme park turns into a haunted attraction, and your children begin to get excited for the events of the upcoming evening. It’s a very exciting time of year, and a traditional end to the summer months for us north of the equator.
