Halloween Decorations....as many now as Christmas!!!

Bignuf Bignuf
Halloween "decorations" used to be a PUMPKIN. Maybe a sheet made into a "ghost". Over the years it has become BIG, BIG sales business, and now, the amount of lighting/special effects/dedicated decor is about what we see at Christmas time.

Do you buy into all that merchandise sale? Do you now have boxes and boxes of Halloween decor to sit in your attic or garage, next to the Christmas decor all the rest of the year??

We had a few boxes of decorations my mom had accumulated or made over the years. A bunch of little ghosts that were stuffed with newspaper, a fake arm to come out of the ground that looked like a fresh grave because it had to get torn up a few months earlier, a few lit pumpkins. Stuff like that. My friend's neighbor has all the fancy blow up things out on their front yard. Last year we put out a pink lighted pumpkin. We haven't decorated for this year yet.

The ghosts with newspaper reminds me of a project we had in kindergarten. We took paper towels or tissues and wrapped them around Tootsie Roll pops and put eyes on them with markers.

We've got a few boxes of Halloween stuff but I love it and like to decorate the house. It's also really neat for my kids. My son is still young enough to go trick or treating and likes the place all decorated.

I would buy loads of Halloween decor if I had the budget for it.

I'm a bit of mixed feelings about the new Christmas-style Halloween lights that are just orange or maybe shaped like tiny pumpkins. They still seem rather Christmas-y to me.

My mom had a boat load of Halloween decorations many many years ago. More than My Man and I have now. She was big on decorating the house and it always looked nice.

I wish I could find the old fashioned cardboard pumpkin heads that you tape to your windows. Those were my favorite.

As we have two Halloween Babies in our family, it's a big holiday for us. So, I do like to decorate for it. I do more 3-D decorations, I put up scenes with "chemicals" and skulls and bottles of witches milk and brains in jars etc. Not to mention all the candles and the metal haunted house the size of a table... table cloths, outdoor decorations, garland everywhere. Scarecrows and a graveyard in our front yard and everything. But, this is all stuff I saw as a kid.

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!!

My mom decorates for Halloweed and has always done so, but I don't decorate my yard.

My mom was a big Halloween decorator. Spider web everywhere and tons of other things. Ive lived in an apartment for the last 6 years of my life, so I never really had room to do so. Well see when I have my own house.

I do, but most of my collection was used for the reception at my wedding, and a few key pieces stay out year round.

I think that whether you decorate for Halloween or not has a lot to do with where you live. I know that when we lived in Atlanta, decorating was a big deal, and everyone seemed to really be into it. At the same time, while we are living in the Denver area, because of the standard Halloween weather (rain or snow and generally cold), yard decorating just doesn't seem to be as important or even as worthwhile. The weather can easily destroy your yard decorations in a matter of minutes, so that can take some of the spirit out of Halloween.

We've collected more and more over the past two years but its mainly become indoor decor... Candle holders&novelties... We have a good bit of outside decor too...Tombstones, jack-o-lanters, inflatables...
