Trick or Treat?
The kids are back in school and winter is just around the corner. That means it’s just about time to start thinking about Halloween!
What’s somewhat interesting about Halloween is that it only developed into its modern form, complete with trick-or-treating and costumes in the late 1930’s. On the other hand, the tradition of pumpkin carving is based on the tradition of turnip carving, which comes from Ireland and England. The original idea was the carving a turnip would maintain the souls trapped in purgatory.
But the most prominent feature of Halloween is the scare factor. Spooky attractions and decorations are sprinkled throughout cities and towns, with splashes of humor as well. If you’re looking for an ornament that will last through the years, check out our signs, clocks, and ornaments. At our Etsy Shop, we have skull ornaments in the Ready to Ship section. We also have a Spooky Skull clock, but we can also do a custom sign. Just let us know what you want, and we’ll get it to you within two weeks plus shipping.
As always, all of our signs, plaques, clocks, and ornaments are made here in Lake Mills, Wisconsin from American Materials and Labor.
