Halloween comes in a close second to Christmas for the holiday Americans spend the most money on for decorations. When I was growing up, the ghoul filled scare-fest was always in the #1 slot around our castle...er...house. My dad was a banker for about 11 months a year, but then came the ramp up to Halloween and he transformed (with some help from my mom) into a mashup of Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee as "Dracula" and for twenty years, our basement became a maze of horrors. Wonderful memories in this episode including an insightful and frightful TBT conversation with the original "Ghost Hunter" and historian, the late, great Richard Crowe from 1999.
