Only 54 Shopping Days Till Christmas

You know what’s funny about Halloween?  Well, lots of things actually and we’ve been spelling them out for you for weeks here-- but what is also quite phenomenal is that crazy thing that happens as soon as Halloween ends.  (Yes, folks, sadly Halloween is over <sniff, sniff> and won’t be back for another year.)  Interestingly enough, however, the morning after Halloween you wake up, and suddenly you’ve found yourself smack in the month of…November.  Oh my goodness!  That means in the space of one night we’re now, according to protocol, right on the threshold of the holiday season!  How in the world did that happen?

Not to alarm anyone here, but the countdown now has officially begun.  There are only 54 shopping days until Christmas.  No need to panic because if you are reading this you are already one step ahead of everyone and can start your holiday planning now.  A great Halloween is now in the tank and what lies ahead is a magical season filled with friends, family and wonder.  There is plenty to look forward to, and certainly we hope that you are as excited as we are to make this the best holiday season ever.

Let’s also not forget that one of the best gifts you could ever give to a child is one that fosters his imagination and allows him to use his inner creativity.  Dress up and creative playtime is a fantastic way to allow your child to experience his favorite characters for himself.  Costumes are certainly not just for Halloween, and kids love to wear costumes on any day just to explore the world of different characters or to pretend to be a more adult role.  We have everything your child could envision for his or her dress up adventures such as army costumes, fairy princesses, superheroes, Disney characters, and hundreds of other possibilities.  Costumes are a wonderful gift for your child that will offer up many hours of imaginative playtime fun!

And while we’re on the subject…don’t forget that someone needs to deliver the goods to all the good little boys and girls out there.  We have a huge assortment of Santa suits and Santa’s helper costumes that are going to add some extra Christmas magic to your holidays.  Try to imagine the sheer delight that your kids would have if Santa were to come and pay them an actual visit!  Think about making a Christmas memory that your child will have for a lifetime if a real Santa were to actually arrive at your home or party.  With one of our beautiful Santa suits you can make it happen easily, before you can lay a finger on the side of your nose and say…”Merry Christmas to all!  And to all a good night!”
