It seems like more and more, people are decorating outside their house for Halloween.
They start decorating weeks before Halloween, just like they do for Christmas.
With special effects, lights and sounds that turn their houses into creepy, spooky and haunted looking homes.
Some don't even look like homes any more. They have been turned into cemeteries.
The blow ups are getting bigger and bigger and way more exciting then those little ones from the past.
Some houses are lite up with so many strands of lights it makes you check your calendar to see what month we are in.
Many people make their own decorations.
Some people combine all sorts of items and themes.
Some are almost to scary to walk up to in order to get your candy.
Some are cute, even if they try to be scary.
Playing on ones fears of spiders, ghosts and witches are often seen.
I think it would be fun to do something like this. Then dress up like a witch, stand still until they walk by you then scare them. I would only do this to the older kids.
I bet the the glow from this house can be seen from down the street.
Someone must really love pumpkins!
Growing up, we never saw anything in the yards, other then a few toothless smiling pumpkins.
Now it's fun just to walk or even drive around the neighborhood to see all the fun decorations.
Sure, some may be over the top. But, with a holiday like Halloween, is there really such a thing as over the top? I say, no. Bring it on!
