Yes, the "Shining Ball" is going to be just as spooky as it sounds.
Sure, big city Halloween festivals are great and all, but in our opinions, no one handles holiday festivities quite as well as small town residents do — they just know how to take seasonal celebrations to the next level with their quirky, charming traditions!

Sarah: U.S. commandos were working alongside Kurdish forces at an outpost in eastern Syria last year when they were attacked by columns of Syrian government tanks and hundreds of troops, including Russian mercenaries. In the next hours, the Americans threw the Pentagon’s arsenal at them, including B-52 strategic bombers. The attack was stopped. That operation, in the middle of the U.S.-led campaign against the Islamic State group in Syria, showed the extent to which the U.S. military was willing to protect the Syrian Kurds, its main ally on the ground. But now, with the White House revoking protection for these Kurdish fighters, some of the Special Forces officers who battled alongside the Kurds say they feel deep remorse at orders to abandon their allies.
