I love halloween, and for over twenty years, I have been serving candies to the local ghosties and ghoulies.
Over the years, I have been trying to do my part to make my street a destination for ghosties and ghoulies, including marquis and costumes.
Over the past few years, inflatable decorations have become the rage in my area, and I’m no exception in having fallen for their charms.
This year, things on my street have gone into overdrive; maybe some people have been organizing with each other unbeknownst to me, and maybe the pandemic has had people wanting to do *anything* to raise spirits, no pun intended.
The first house to start decorating for Halloween started, best I could tell, on the last weekend of September. As of mid October, there are fourteen of the twenty two houses on the two block stretch I can see from my house (however, there is another block of street beyond my view, with some decorations too!)
I have taken pictures for your viewing pleasure:
This is the furthest house I can just see from home, and they are also the most decorated!
This haunted house is easily visible from my house, despite being at the second furthest house from me.
The inflatables in this house have flickering lights, as well as other decorations on the other side of the house.
The ghost on this lawn is actually covering an old tree stump; there are also other decorations at the door on the side of the house, and in the windows out front.
Here is another house needing two pictures for their decorations:
This is the house had the first decorations this year, first set up over the last weekend of September:
At this house, Dracula is ready to welcome ghosties and ghoulies!
This house has a piglet dressed as a witch inflatable, and a witch who can’t fly too well on her broom!
Here’s a baby Frankenstein, and an x-ray dinosaur!
I’m not sure is this a Halloween decoration, or just a cute fall / harvest themed garden decoration.
Here is the lawn at my house — a ghost, a headless person holding up a pumpkin, an x-ray pumpkin head person, a funny Frankenstein, a cute monster, another ghost, a happy witch,
and a frankenstein, and — UPDATED PHOTO 20211024 — a bat in the tree. Three Four are new this year!
Here is another house with their decorations:
One of my close neighbours likes zombies:
so far the last house on the street (I live on a cul-de-sac), this house has an alien visiting, and being a little confused as to whom the real locals are:
UPDATE 20211024: Another house set up their decorations this weekend, and it merits three pictures!
UPDATE 20211025: Another house set up their decorations this weekend! Check the little lights around the tree, and the pumpkins on the steps up to the door.
More pics will be added if, as, and when other houses are decorated.
I’m looking forward to Halloween this year!
