One of our favorite things about Martha Stewart is her passionate-bordering-on-unreasonable love for Halloween. From spooky home decor to elaborate homemade costumes, she does her best to ensure that October 31 is a really good thing. Sorry, Christmas—according to <a href="http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.a869edc68b016ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=205ebab02fd7f010VgnVCM1000005b09a00aRCRD&vgnextchannel=5366ca6d3f4ae010VgnVCM1000005b09a00aRCRD&appInstanceName=”>Gael Towey, chief creative officer of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and acting editor-in-chief of Martha Stewart Living, “Halloween” was the most searched for holiday at marthastewart.com in 2008, and with Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, Martha is pulling out all the stops. The October issue of Living offers what Towey describes as “a parade of wicked and wild ideas for marvelous masks, devilish decorations, and deliciously deranged dishes to serve friends.” Meanwhile, Monday’s episode of The Martha Stewart Show promises a “Halloween Pet-acular.” Translation: an audience full of creatively costumed pets and their owners. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, fashion designer (and pet owner) Isaac Mizrahi will be on hand to assist with a festive pet fashion show. “Definitely tune in,” advises Isaac. “Since my dog Harry is one of the very special guests.”
