When you start seeing pumpkins popping up everywhere you look, you know it's almost Halloween season. Why not add a pumpkin to your computer screen, too? At our house, our monitors get into the Halloween spirit with screensavers full of spooky ghosts, glowing pumpkins, cackling witches, rattling skeletons, dancing black cats, and circling bats.

Screensavers are available from many sources. My favorites come from websites that specialize in seasonal decorations for computers.
