Crazy Halloween Houses!

Oh my goodness, readers! What can be said about the commercialization of Halloween? The picture above is not of Snobville, but it might as well be. This whole borough is lit up in orange and purple! Big giant spiders in the yards, ghosts hanging from the trees! People are doing up their houses with gaudy decorations!

My three readers will know that I adore crazy Christmas houses. But if this yard-decorating trend continues, I'll just foam at the mouth with glee! Will my golden years include crazy Halloween house crawls? Catch me, I'm fainting!

Love the idea of a Halloween House.
Bad news is that I saw my first Christmas commercial. EEew! Too soon!

If they are going to do to Halloween what they did to Christmas, then I'm going to quietly celebrate Samhain and avoid the more secular holiday like the Plague that X-mas has become.

I love when people go all out like this. There are a few houses almost as done up in my neighborhood!

In our neighborhood, some homes are lit up and decorated for ALL 'holidays'...red lights for Valentine's Day, Green for St. Patricks's ...gets interesting!

I love it when people do this. I remember when I was a kid and a lot of people in my small midwestern town I grew up in did the above for halloween.
