It used to be that the biggest household holiday decorating took place in December, but nowadays it seems that Halloween is also a major decorating event. You know the Christmas villages with the light-up buildings and those huge blow-up lawn figurines? Well, they have them for Halloween, too. Everywhere I look houses are decorated with fake spider webs, gravestones, ghosts and witches. To which I can only say I must be the Halloween Decorating Grinch because with the exception of pumpkins (which I really like) I just don’t like Halloween decorations. Why? Because they’re scary. Now, if you give me a CUTE ghostie (think Caspar) or an ADORABLE witch, I might consider it. But those scary-looking ghouls and goblins are not my thing. If that stuff was in my house I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. Here’s now I decorate for Halloween, aka Photographic Proof of My Love of Pumpkins.
Another Halloween thing I’m a Grinch about are those haunted houses that you walk through where slimy stuff touches you and things jump out at you. I can sum that up in one word: yucky. I don’t like slimy and I hate it when things jump out and scare me. Which explains why I don’t care for scary movies. I suffer from BFC Syndrome–that stands for Big Fat Chicken (insert clucking noises here )
But, on the plus side, there are now Halloween Peeps–they’re not just for Easter anymore! Yay! And I love Halloween candy! Of course, I can’t buy it until the day before or it doesn’t make it to trick-or-treating time. My favorite Halloween candies are Almond Joy and Three Muskateers. So, that’s how I’m decorating this year–with pumpkins, Almond Joys, and Three Muskateers. All treats, no tricks. And that’s just the way I like it.
Do you decorate for Halloween or are you more of a Grinch? Do you like haunted houses and scary movies? What are your favorite Halloween candy treats?
