Now that the Fourth of July has passed, people can now start focusing on the next mega American holiday: Halloween. Several stores across the country have already started putting this year's spooky season collections on store shelves.

Every year, it looks like decorations for holidays keep getting put out earlier and earlier. But none more so than Halloween. Some people started seeing colors of orange and black on store shelves as early as June. But come July, there's no denying that the Halloween decorations come out in full force.

People are waiting for big drops from Lowe's and The Home Depot.

The most anticipated Halloween decoration drops actually come from Lowe's and The Home Depot. Lowe's gave a sneak peek if the store's drop this year in a TikTok much earlier this year on April 24 and has since been releasing exclusive online drops. But a date has not been announced for when the decorations will hit the floor.

On March 13, The Home Depot announced that it's signature Skelly will be back this Halloween season, plus a new companion and friends.

The Home Depot issued limited quantities of its Halloween decorations for online shoppers on April 25. But since then had not announced when the items would be available in store. However, on July 9, The Home Depot posted a cryptic Skelly post on its social media platforms.

LOOK: How Halloween has changed in the past 100 years

Stacker compiled a list of ways that Halloween has changed over the last 100 years, from how we celebrate it on the day to the costumes we wear trick-or-treating. We’ve included events, inventions, and trends that changed the ways that Halloween was celebrated over time. Many of these traditions were phased out over time. But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
