Hey! This is Billgreen54 your favorite English teacher at American English Grammar Review! Halloween is always special for my family. This holiday holds many special memories from the past including my time in retail. Those years in the dime store business were a life adventure indeed! One Halloween In the late '80s, I decided to create a haunted house just before entering my store. Hauntingly unique with black walls and a spooky front gate. As you entered, to the left, there was a cardboard maze for kids to crawl through with tricks and treats from start to finish. To the right, were half a dozen bales of hay with six scarecrows wearing masks all neatly positioned. The first five looked alive meticulously stuffed with newspaper and more recyclables from around the house. The sixth and final scarecrow slumped over the last bale was my little brother Gary. It was his idea to dress up as one of the family and surprise or should I say, scare anyone too close for comfort. Our haunted house and Gary's need to make everyone jump back a few feet with a smile or two made for the perfect Halloween!

I hope you enjoyed this blast from the past or should I say, a little fright at night! Stay tuned and have fun listening while learning English vocabulary for your next Halloween night out!
