The Halloween Countdown Calendar is back for the month of October
Many visual cues signal the fall season.
Leaves are changing colors, combines are rolling, and soon enough, Halloween decorations will go up and trick or treaters will be knocking on doors.
To help celebrate the Halloween season, the team at Farms.com has created a Halloween Countdown Calendar.
Each day throughout the month of October, Farms.com visitors can click on the current date to watch fun family videos including elaborate pumpkin carvings and DIY ideas for Halloween décor.
Families can also click on past dates to re-watch videos or catch up on ones they may have missed.
“We are so appreciative of the farmers and agribusiness owners who choose Farms.com as a source of industry news,” said Farms.com President and CEO Graham Dyer. “The Halloween Countdown Calendar is a small way for us to say thank you for your support. Our team has compiled a great collection of videos for our farm families to enjoy together.”
