I am confused. We just celebrated Columbus Day in Mass but NH does not.

My wife just showed up with Halloween candy - little bags of M&Ms, snickers bars, Milky Way, etc - and a big bag of red and green peanut M&Ms.
I thought that Halloween was followed by Thanksgiving then Christmas.
Thanksgiving requires candy corn.
I must be missing something so I will try to deplete the red & green peanut M&Ms before Halloween and hope we get candy corn soon so we don't have Holiday candy overlap.

Many folks are enjoying an early Christmas with " new " T's .... :-)

Concerning Columbus day. Here in California, the U.S.mail was not delivered. The schools were open but Bank of America was closed and Wells Fargo Bank was open. Very confusing. Also confusing is that Columbus day used to be October 12 but now is on a Monday so it was on the 10th. Some stores are still having Columbus day sales even though the day has passed!

Halloween. When I was young, the kids dressed up and went "Trick or Treating" That practice was started to discourage vandalism. Later the schools had a carnival and encouraged the kids to dress up and attend which was done to keep them off the streets. Now the schools do not permit dressing up because the costumes might be "offensive", or might scare somebody!

Isn't life fun!
Norm
