A fun and easy way to display “thankfulness” in your home for Thanksgiving.
October is flying faster than a witch on a broom and we have already reached our 3rd round of the Halloween candy battle. (Click for Round One & Two) All of the sweet candies, Starburst, Sour Patch Kids, Twizzlers, Mike & Ike, Pop Rocks, Nerds, and Jolly Ranchers, have been knocked out and only chocolate ones remain but which will reign supreme as the ultimate people’s choice? You will soon find out but until then help us decide which two deserve a spot at the final face off.
I think iit’s safe to say every homeowner remembers their first Halloween at their home.Having Trick or Treaters is like a home ownership rite of passage.

I wrote this a couple of years ago and wanted to share it again because it remains relevant today.

Tis’ the season to be jolly as the old yule tide goes, but it’s also a season for frustration with home holiday decorations. As I made my 20th trek to the basement this weekend to bring up even more Christmas decorations, I found myself getting annoyed with the whole process.

This year we partnered with NBC to not only create a holiday themed TV spot, but also advertise on some of the most notable holiday programs. This week, we launch our holiday themed ad which we call “Crowded House.” Our recent survey of consumers showed that 40% of people have more than 15 people living under one roof during the holiday season! As you’ll see in the video below, we played off that concept in what we think is a relatable TV commercial.
