If you love Halloween and all it has to offer, you can enjoy endless festivities during the "Halloween Season." If not, it's best to leave the country until November 1st, when life, sadly, goes back to normal, for a few weeks at least, until the next holiday season begins. 58 The Halloween Season W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 4 D A R R E N B O V I E
