It’s an appreciation of the Halloween esthetic. A love (or some would say obsession) of all things relating to Halloween; art, music, literature and food.
The Long Answer?
While Halloween started as an important pagan holiday (and still continues today), it has grown into a larger cultural phenomenon that encompasses many aspects of the human experience. Second only to Christmas in its popularity on the North American calendar, Halloween is fast becoming one of the largest celebrations in the world. And as such, It’s a shared cultural experience that binds us together and enriches our lives.

**Plus it’s a heck of a lot of fun and we all enjoy a great party right?
