Don’t look now, but October is just a hop, skip, and a jump away!

“Ererrrrrrrlow mii neerrm pejj krrrlerl iii herrrloweennn,” said one Halloween loving cave dweller we tried interviewing.

While it’s clear that the Halloween cave dwellers have not quite readjusted to life outside the cave, it’s a very exciting time for them.

“We get a lot of reports of people in Halloween costumes around this time. It’s really just the Halloween loving cave dwellers coming out to readjust before Halloween festivities start up,” said one Sioux Falls Police Department representative we spoke with.

Cooler air is helping fuel the Halloween loving cave dwellers experience late August, when they’re usually still hibernating.

“We have had some cooler air come into the area, but sadly for the Halloween lovers it’s not going to be sticking around. They might have to take a little bit of a nap rather than a full hibernation,” said one meteorologist.

Sioux Falls Police also remind citizens to not assault or attack cave dwellers for any reason.

“They’re not here to hurt you. They just look a little scary. The problem is when you can’t tell if the person is a Halloween lover or just someone who lives downtown,” said one SFPD representative.

SFPD would be okay with minor injuries to Christmas people, though.

It’s August, people. Calm down with your Christmas stuff.
