    I've never lived full-time in Salem, but it really feels like one of my hometowns. Most of my family's friends are from there and my stepfather was a featured artist in an art gallery there for a few years and did some artwork for a few of the haunted houses during haunted happenings, so we were there all the time and I practically grew up there. Also, my sister worked at The Fool's Mansion for a little while and my family and I marched with Samantha's costume shop during their display in the HH parade. I know that place better than the back of my hand, and I love it. It's gotten quite commercialized though unfortunately; more and more so every year.
