I enjoy Halloween. It is a holiday, where we can just be silly, or be terrifying; both are equally satisfying. This will be a quick blog about Halloween at my house.
This year mother nature did not co-operate very much. We had terrific winds, snow, rain and ice all within a day. This limited me in how much I could decorate (for fear of it blowing away), but I did manage to decorate the yard and house.
I dressed up as the horror host, Svengoolie.
I decided to have 2 paths. Kids could get treats and leave, or go through a scarier path. The scarier path consisted of a jumping spider, an animated bat, and a projection of zombies trying to get through the door.
With the weather as terrible as it was, the normal number of trick or treaters (over 100) was down to around 10- 15. As disappointing as this was, it could have been worse. One year we had a snow storm during Halloween, which meant no one was out trick or treating.
I got a new projector on the one side of my house.
Also a new projection of zombies trying to claw through my door. I apologize for the quality, all pictures and videos were taken by my phone.
To go with the revolving bats on my wall.
Although, their were few kids visiting my house, they enjoyed what I did. I enjoyed handing out candy, but still have bags of it left over.
