Lessons for Halloween 2006?

Every year I learn something new about setting up for Halloween. This year, it was:

1) Always have those extra-long safety matches on hand (handy for lighting up jack-o-lanterns that go out).

and

2) Have a mallet on hand. It's way better than a hammer at pounding in stakes and decorative items into the ground.

What did you all learn this year? What are your tips and tricks?
