There is finally a chill in the air and our little goblins are getting excited for Halloween.  School is in full swing, and it’s already time to celebrate! Whether you’re choosing the perfect pumpkin, sipping hot apple cider, or running through a corn maze with your children, the fall season turns us all into kids again.  “Halloween” is derived from the Scottish phrase, “All Hallow’s Eve”.  The tradition originates from Celtic nations, where they celebrated the festival of “Samhain” to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the winter.  People made bonfires, visited graveyards, and lit candles in memory of the deceased.  It was believed that the spirits of the dead were more likely to visit their homes on Halloween.  BOO!

Modern Halloween is rooted in its own customs, as our children decorate pumpkins, bob for apples, and dress up as spooky characters to trick or treat on October 31.  With just one month to go, Lillian Vernon can help turn your home into the scariest house on the block, or the prettiest place to celebrate.  From personalized treat bags, (free for the name), to witches, scarecrows, and skeletons, here’s a roundup of our most popular spooky items of the season.  Don’t want to scare your neighbors? Our fall home décor will welcome your guests with monogrammed napkins, hand towels, door mats, cozy blankets, and candle holders.  To shop the full collection click HERE.

LV Lifestyle Hack:  After carving your pumpkin, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to all of the cut areas and anywhere you have removed the skin. This will help preserve the jack-o’-lantern by keeping it from drying out.  If your pumpkin starts to look, well, scary, you can soak it face-down in cold water for a few hours to help it last a bit longer. You can also extend the life of your pumpkin by refrigerating until you’re ready to display it.
