May 1st (or mathematically May 2nd) is Half-O-Ween! But when did it start? Some say it began in 2010. Others say it was first celebrated in an episode of Nickelodeon’s iCarly series in 2012. 12:10

Big brands are starting to do really big things to mark the halfway mark to Halloween! 14:52 

April 30th, May 1st, or May 2nd? 15:43 

Why aren’t traditional department stores taking advantage of Half-O-Ween? 16:28

Big box department stores like to keep an eye on Halloween content creators, and sometimes it seems like they “borrow” inspiration from Halloween community. 18:16 

The Halloween Community 22:45

Miranda created the private Samhain Society Facebook group for Halloween content creators to collaborate and inspire each other. 24:35

The paranormal community could learn a lot from the Halloween community. 30:12

Halloween as a hobby and the stress of October! 32:28

Chelsea along with Andrew and his partner will watch Hocus Pocus as well, but also just use this time to focus more on kicking off the upcoming season and preparing content for Halloween! 32:54
