A Step by Step Guide… Halloween in the 70s 1. Two weeks before Halloween bring the small box of Halloween decorations up from the basement. Scotch tape the two dimensional, cardboard skeleton to the front door. Open up the crepe paper honeycomb pumpkin and put it on an end table in the living room next to the gigantic, iron eagle lamp.
Dump a bag of candy corn in an amber glass candy dish. Smoke a cigarette and let the kids watch Creature Feature on the TV set all afternoon to get in the mood. One week before Halloween grab a pumpkin at the supermarket when you run in to get cube steaks.

Your El Camino and the Duster next door are clean. The house that got hit the worst belongs to the weird family on the corner who, instead of Three Musketeers bars, hands out creepy comic books about trick or treaters going to Hell.
