Buckle up, Halloween fiends (and anyone who loves a good excuse to throw a party): This year’s spooky season will be longer than ever. Stores are already rolling out their All Hallows Eve decor—and in some cases, it’s already selling out (get your Skelly while it's still in stock!).
But don’t just take our word for it: “Before, it’d be mid-October” when people started hauling out the decorations, says Lance Allen, senior decorative holiday merchant at Home Depot. “Now, people are pushing to beginning of October and into September. You can’t start too early.”
