This week, I will be going away from my normal blog topics, such as history or recap about me visiting a fair, and just decorating for Halloween at my house.
For one thing, I did not attend any Halloween attractions as I normally do (see last year’s post). I did have one lined up, to attend, but had a cancelation at the last minute from the friends I was going to go with.
Instead of recapping a Halloween attraction, I will simply discuss Halloween at my house. I do like to decorate the lawn, and hand out candy, so this was pretty much my Halloween.
Besides the above witch, I had numerous lawn decorations for Halloween. I had bought numerous small styrofoam pumpkins at the Dollar Store. Some I ran a cord through them, and made a pumpkin garland to hang off my porch.
Others I put electric flameless tea lights into, to shine next to my sidewalk, to illuminate the sidewalk for the trick-or-treaters.
One of my favorite decorations was my skeleton crawling over a stone wall.
|Even my yard is scary at night.|
I did get a new item for this year, it projected rotating mages of flying bats on my wall; sorry the picture is not clear.
Of course this is my Halloween costume; I am dressed as Negan from The Walking Dead. I painted a whiffle bat, and used cord with painted toothpicks for the barbed wire.
I also would like to address retail stores. I went into several stores this year (several weeks ago) and discovered their Halloween decorations were GONE, and replaced by Christmas ones. I can understand these stores putting out Christmas decorations earlier and earlier, but at least wait until Halloween is over before you pack those decorations all up.
