Now, granted, Halloween doesn't have the lofty goodwill at the center of its celebration like Christmas, so people don't complain about it being too commercial. But you know what? I'm ecstatic at how commercial Christmas is these days, too.

somewhere in the country.
|Right, right "Beware, Beware..." |
We got it animatronic witch.
Michaels also sets up an entire display of those large animatronic, motion-sensor props that are fun to set off the first time, but whose spooky spiels get annoying when you’re legitimately browsing around and have set it off three times just because you’re waffling on whether to buy that ceramic jack-o-lantern whose face reminds you of Bronson Pinchot from certain angles.
When I do end up buying Halloween stuff to store in my dusty basement for 10 out of 12 months, I usually buy it from Michaels. Its only weakness is its lack of a candy aisle. I wish that were my only weakness.
