The Spooky Daily Giant Skeleton Calendar

Four years ago, Home Depot introduced a 12-foot skeleton that became a sensation. We call him Skelly. If you've purchased your own Skelly, you want to take good care of him. But you also want to get your money's worth and use him more than one month out of the year! Take a look at how Skelly is used to celebrate holidays and other special event year-round.
