We are sure you noticed, but there are Christmas songs already on the radio and ads on TV. While our time is almost over, we have one last chance to enjoy all that we love about our holiday. We call it, “Encore Weekend.”

Inspired by the immortal, infamous words of Clark W. Griswold, “Where do you think you’re going? Nobody’s leaving. Nobody’s walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Halloween. No, no. We’re all in this together! This is a full-blown, four-alarm Halloween emergency here. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Halloween since Jason Voorhees danced with Freddy freaking Krueger. And when Michael Myers comes barging through that door tonight, he’s gonna find the scariest bunch of creepers this side of Haddonfield.”
