Here's an evocative Halloween 1946 paper advert for Dessart Brothers. Note the quaint spelling of "Hallowe'en." Note also this ad is from the March 1946 issue of Playthings, the trade magazine. I repeat, March. So...some may complain Halloween shows up too early in the stores now, but maybe not early enough? Playthings magazine is still published.
