I'm sure everybody remembers when McDonald's used to celebrate Halloween heavily. They'd play commercials themed for the season and, better yet, they provided the kids with some cool trinkets in the happy meals. It's safe to say their most famous "toy" was actually the box the meal came in when they were the Halloween candy pails for the trick-or-treaters. You know the ones I'm talking about...

Is it just me, or does it seem like most companies that aren't making money off of decorations, such as the Walmarts, Meijer, etc., aren't really promoting anything or even doing anything special for the Halloween season anymore? I'd figure companies of all types could make huge profits off of Halloween, and huge profits is all they care about.. so why not?

Sydlexia has a great, and humorous write-up about them. Photo courtesy of Sydlexia.
