Belated Halloween Pics  
Passed this house on a walk, naturally had to take pics.

Of course the "hands" are my favorite part of the whole design.

It's obvious they have a lot of fun with this, very inspirational.

Did you guys decorate for Halloween? Get any trick-or-treaters?

Nice touch, reminded me of one of the Hell Boy movies.

Naturally that's a bat hanging from the light above the doorway.

I've found that living in an apartment makes trick-or-treaters a rare thing, and it's not for a lack of kids in the complex either. We had none last year, but this year, a single group of little girls came to the door. Naturally, they got almost all of the candy since I was certain no others would come. I was right! :-)

I'd love to go all-out like the people in your pictures did. They did such a great job! But my only decoration is a human-sized ghostly spectre in a gossamer shroud that was purchased for super cheap after a past Halloween. I hang it so it looks like someone standing at the rail of my front porch. My neighbor downstairs has commented that it startled her every time she came home. X-D I'll settle for that!

I feel you. I think one needs to go out of their way to volunteer now, because it's become more popular to organize kids instead of letting them go to individual houses. I grew up in an apartment complex and then in a suburban neighborhood -- I'm so, so glad I got to experience the utter excitement of that before it changed. I'm sure some people still do it the old-fashioned way, and there are valid safety arguments for organizing stuff, but...it's not the same.

What a great little story!

I like the black and white version. It makes all that kitschy stuff look spooky.

We actually had snow on Halloween, even though winter has been mild so far. I missed out on taking the kids around, but still visited places, like a church and assisted living home that had indoor stuff going on. Now I have kids, I might decorate more.

I love that window!

The amount of kids we get vary all the time, along with the costumes. I am not very good at decorating for Halloween, alas.

I can imagine, you're much better at horse-themed happiness!

nice! I decorated for Halloween, but sadly we only got 3 trick or treaters. :/ I think it's because most people around here seem to go to the "safe" Halloween things like the various church's trunk-or-treat things. Which I guess is understandable, but still kinda disappointing.

Yeah. And I think of your neighborhood as being a safe one too. Hmph.

I guess it's true what they are saying about this helicopter parenting stuff. I mean...in a city like mine, it can make more sense, but in rural areas like yours...unless there is more going on than I know...I'd have to cough some of it up to laziness too. It's just easier to go to an event then hike around a neighborhood. My family used to do both though.
Miaka, The Bunny Monst☆rsobloodycute on December 16th, 2014 01:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, our area is pretty suburban, but you can imagine how over-protective suburban southern parents could be, I'm sure. XD Plus I think it's like you said--also laziness. It's much easier to get all your trick-or-treating done in one spot than walking around neighborhoods for a few hours...(But where's the fun in that?! plus working out before eating the candy is probably a good thing lol XD)
But oh, well...I love Halloween, anyway, so I'd decorate even if we didn't get any at all....
