Hi Linda,
Thanks for the reply! (You asked the right person, Halloween is my favorite holiday).... Yes our Halloween is October 31st. And it only last for one day.

I can't speak for everyone in the US there are normally two reasons why you would see so much Halloween art out already. One because Halloween to some people is considered a major holiday (like me I love it and therefore celebrate this holiday more than Christmas) and there are many who celebrate and only craft Halloween all year round.

Another reason why there is a lot of Halloween art out is because in America we market/advertise holiday's in advance always chasing the almighty dollar. Among many American's it is a joke that Christmas stuff is coming out earlier and earlier, and the same goes for Halloween.

I guess if I had to reach out there for a third reason and this would be for the Northeastern US. Salem, Massachusetts is the home of the legendary witch trials, when the Puritans came over and many of the young girls accused the elders of witchcraft and many of the accused were hanged and one was crushed as a form of punishment for the crime in which later on were found innocent of. I have been to Salem on Halloween and it is the Northeastern US's form of Mardi Gras. People from all over come and dress up for one night of toil and trouble and gather to go on witch tours and admire elaborate costumes. Really a treat for the Halloween lovers at heart.

I hope that answers your questions and I didn't ramble too much. Since it is my favorite holiday I wanted to make sure I gave an accurate depiction.
