Fall Decorating Doesn't Have to Be Scary

Do not hate me, but I don't love Halloween.  It is not that I am against dressing up, having parties, or giving out (and eating!) candy; I don't like all the goriness or scariness that many others love.  To me, it feels as if we are glorifying death and I would rather celebrate life.  Don't get me wrong:  I don't judge those who like skeletons and ghosts, it is just my preference to go in a different direction.

Because of this, I like to concentrate instead on fall colors, fall produce, and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday season when it comes to fall decorating. Much of that can work for Halloween decorating also, without the blood or bones.
