The Politically Savvy Shoppers Guide to New & Exciting Halloween Costumes and Decorations

Updated on September 21, 2011

Autumn is practically here and Halloween (or Samhain for us pagans) is just 'round the corner!

I don't know about you but for me the glisten has fallen off the pumpkin when it comes to Halloween decorations. Same old jack o' lanterns, unscary ghost props, frazzled fake cobwebs, ect. When it comes to holiday treats my family are wearied of the standard goblin-face cupcakes and fake hand in the green jello punch, too. Even choosing a Halloween costume has lost its excitement (there are only so many times you can put on a harem outfit and keep it in pristine condition what with hubby typically taking out the Tarzan costume with the matching "grape vine" every year).

Anyway, for the last week I had been butting my brain trying to figure out new and BOLD celebration ideas. Then, low and behold, what should the mailman drop into our box but a catalog from The Politically Savvy Shoppers Seasonal Ideas Catalog*. It is definitely not your run-of-the-mill seasonal catalog, but hey, for some of us it may take a little different to make the holiday feel like a holiday again! Besides, in small print on the ordering page it says a portion of all purchases goes toward the Dividends for Warren Buffett's Secretary Fund. A worthy cause, no doubt!.

The following items are a few samples from the catalog. If you are looking to celebrate the season AND be a political animal, who knows? You may just find that unique & thrilling decorating idea you have only DREAMED of!

*a parody name, not intended to be taken seriously. In fact, none of these items are real nor are they intended to be assumed as anything more than parody.
