    Fall is my all time favorite season because it means apples , cooler days , the delicious smell of pumpkin spice,crisp leaves scattered around the parks, Halloween, and of course because my daughter was born in Autumn so it made me love it even more.

    Amber Delgado says:

    Halloween time has always been a family favorite holiday since I was 17 years old. That is the first Halloween that I actually had a family. My foster mom would spend hours designing both hers and my costumes followed by festivities of decorating the house. It was a scence similar to those who decorate their homes for Xmas but ours was adorned with spiderwebs, witches, skeletons and zombies. I was so happy the day my mom showed up at my doorstep with a big box of favored halloween treasures to pass on the decorating traditions to my own son. Halloween is the beginning of scary stories, decorating fun, and Halloween themed dinners bringing me and my son a shared joy.
