For most, the day of Halloween is a happy time for children to skulk the streets in costumes looking for handouts with playful threats of tricks.
For The Wheelers, however, Halloween is the start of the joyous season of holidays that come four to a package. There’s Hollerween, Tanksgivin’, Exmas, and Nu Yars Eve. There’s nothing a Wheeler likes to do than to celebrate these days as loud as possible.

“We getin’ a toikey this yar?” asked Junior. “I ain’t eatin’ no possum agin!”
