(or Ghosts of Halloweens Past)
The first time I remember being ridiculously excited for Halloween was when I got to don my She-Ra around the age of 4. My Dad upped the cool factor even further by making me a custom wooden sword; it even had the gemstone in it! (I still have the sword, but unfortunately the gem fell out years ago.)
