I get a kick out of halloween, it’s cool driving around to see the neat creativity people do around their houses. Not far from me a guy decorates his entire yard and top of his house each year. What I can’t figure out is where he stores all his stuff. His theme is usually a toxic waste facility with marked 50 gallon drums and zombies.....LOL!
I’m with you. Everyone in town knows we try to make our house the scariest, so they all bring their kids. We don’t do anything ‘graphic’. Fog coming out a caldron with skulls in it and spooky music. A skeletal guy in the darkened 2nd floor window with a cape and flowing robes and a strobe light. A trash can that has a hydraulic monster that jumps up when I hit the button. But the thing the kids like most is my husband comes from around the back of the house to chase them away in his gorilla suit. They know it’s coming and still get scared. And the times he couldn’t do it, they were disappointed and asked about it. Last year we really freaked them out, because we had TWO gorillas. The next morning I have to go out and pick up all the spilled candy from the kids running away. LOL!
