Average?

While working on props, and moving things from the garage to the front yard, we had both front and back doors wide open (great October weather in Texas) and wanted to listen to some MOOOOD music from all over the house.   So Jayson finds the “Halloween Music” channel on our local cable system, and turns it on.

No one really paid attention to the rotating graphics and Halloween-Fact-of-the-minute, until on a trip out the door I noticed this:

 

Halloween thru Christmas 2008 240

If you can’t make it out, towards the top is the Halloween factoid…. “The average American spends $81 on candy, costumes, and pumpkins for Halloween”.

HA!  I guess that makes us all OVER Average in this category.

Jayson and I can barely get out of Home Depot or Lowe’s for less than $100 a trip, and I shudder to think how many Halloween trips like that we make throughout the year….  woah.

(Though, you can tell that we choose to spend our money on Halloween prop making materials, and OBVIOUSLY not on awesome TVs, haha!)

ok wait...wait wait wait...you have a Halloween Music channel where you live?

Why..why don't I have one? Excuse me while I accost my cable provider.

Haha, don't feel bad, only about 2 of every 10 songs really keep you in the mood - most of them are suspiciously NOT Halloween music!

(But it's still fun... so accost away, for sure!)

I know those trips to Home Depot and Lowes. Hard to get out of there without spending $100.00.

Oh yeah, and I want that Halloween music channel, just to say I have it.

I was about to ask the same question as Ghoul Friday, but she beat me to it. :) I don't have cable, but XM satellite radio always puts on Christmas music during the season. I checked in October, hoping they would add a Halloween music channel, but no cigar.
