Do You Go All Out Decorating Your House For Halloween?
More and more people are going all out, according to this article and online survey. (And take a look at the photo gallery. It’s all just ONE family’s house!) All pray to the Griswold Gods. I respect the heck out of anyone who does this. I remember growing up in Rahway there was this modest house right next to a place called Ted’s Pizza (which to this day is still one of the finest pizzas offered in New Jersey btw) and for Christmas every year they just went crazy. I mean seriously, I’m not sure if there was a square foot of empty space anywhere on the entire front of that home. It was something that I looked for even as a grown up whenever I came back to town. Electric bills be damned, full speed ahead! And now they say Halloween is becoming very much the same, with obviously a whole different feel. You can get all out psycho sick and be regarded as a creative artist. I like that. I just have never been that ambitious. I feel like these folks are much more fun-loving than me. I like Halloween but I don’t like that much work. When you get homes that actually generate traffic, now you’re talking the true heroes. I almost feel they should get a tax credit against their utility bill come November.
