Whether you love to spoil your spouse on Valentine's Day or you take decking the halls to the next level at Christmastime, everyone has a favorite holiday. For people whose favorite holiday is Halloween, the possibilities for a costume are pretty much endless.
The real fun comes not from those who like to dress themselves up, but from those who live to dress everything up. There's always one house in the neighborhood that shows up everyone else with their creepy, over-the-top creative decorations, and these people are all that neighbor.
Now all they need is to set up a tape recorder or video camera so they can actually hear what people have to say for their argument.
It'd be entertaining, for sure.
Guarding The House
What is this, Game of Thrones? How do you even begin to build a dragon like this on the roof of your house, or where would you purchase a creature like this?
Maybe the new family pet can stay all year round to scare off any funny business.
Work With What You've Got
You haven't had time to clean up (or rather, you haven't had the chance to call someone about cleaning up) that tree that fell in the front yard, so you might as well work with what you've been given.
This is adapting.
They Seem Like Fun Neighbors
Anyone who goes to the effort of putting giant teeth around their front porch to celebrate a single day has to be a fun person, it's basically science.
They seem like the people who would hand out full-sized candy bars.
Celebrating Dia De Muertos
Dia de Muertos is celebrated on November 2nd, but if you want to make a giant skeleton look like he's popping out of the ground a few days earlier than that, it'll make for the perfect Halloween decoration too.
Hopefully nobody drives on this road too often.
Big Pumpkin People
Is there such a thing as too many pumpkins?
Whoever was in charge of carving all of these might argue that yes, there is, but they just look so festive.
His Wife Was Probably Thrilled
This is what happens when you leave your husband in charge of the Halloween decorations.
The scariest thing he could think of was marriage, but he has no idea how scary it can actually be.
Simple Can Still Be Scary
Sometimes, all it takes is a single floating red balloon sticking out of the sewer grate near your house to instill terror into the hearts of the local gangs of youths.
I know I would never walk down that street again.
Who Are You Gonna Call?
Clearly, these are people who like Halloween.
No matter how much your boss claims he doesn't like the holiday or complains that the neighborhood is always busy that night, no man who decorates an entire building can keep up that lie.
A Haunting Cautionary Tale
Teach a lesson, but make it scary.
One could argue that these boney dudes might distract someone else while they're driving past, but that's a conversation to have on November 1st.
You Could Leave The Lights Up Until Christmas
Your husband always complains that you make him take down the Christmas lights every spring, only to have to put them up a few months later.
Let him at least get a head start by leaving these lights up from Halloween onwards.
It's Always The Right Time To Celebrate The Beatles
There's never going to be a bad time to celebrate the music of The Beatles, but as far as tributes go, this is a pretty good one.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Abbey Road was a success.
That's Got To Hurt
It looks like the wicked witch of the East took a wrong turn when she was leaving Oz and ended up squished against this tree.
Better than a house falling down on her!
What Do You Think They're Talking About?
Imagine walking your dog down the street early one morning only to stumble across this creepy meeting of the minds happening on the front lawn...
We'll be crossing over to the other sidewalk.
His Home Outside Your Home
Oh, the tangled web we weave with these decorations.
This display would be sure to wake you up in the morning when you step out onto the front porch and forget it's there.
The House Is Creepy Enough Already
Even without the imitation guillotine in the doorway, this house gives off some seriously creepy vibes (in the best way possible), so you might as well work with what you've got.
Nothing scarier than historical architecture truely.
He'll Be Greeting Customers Forever
Anyone who has ever worked as a cashier at Walmart can probably feel just how realistic this decoration is.
It was meant as a joke, but any customer service worker has felt like this skeleton looks.
I Wonder What Their Favorite Holiday Is
This is the kind of house that will leave little kids clutching their parents' pant legs at the end of the driveway because they're too scared to walk past that giant dragon.
We don't blame them.
That's One Way To Scare Your Roommates
If you've got no decorations to speak of but a whole lot of tape lying around, you can make ghosts that look like they're emerging straight from the living room wall!
This one is both creative and cost-effective.
Just Keep Walking And Don't Look At Them
This looks like someone recreated a scene straight out of Riverdale as part of their Halloween decor, and that very well might be true.
At least they didn't take the route of a real bonfire.
They've Been Waiting For You
These pumpkins look like they've been sitting up in the living room all night waiting for their teenage son to get home because he's late for curfew, and they've got a lecture prepared.
Have you any idea what time it is?!
Don't Be Surprised When The Police show Up
He left what appears to be a dead body under the tires of his car, as well as one squashed under the garage door.
Is it any wonder that someone on his street called 911?
Put Those Things Away, There Are Children Here
This is definitely the work of someone's husband who said, "Honey, come look outside! There's a full moon tonight!" only for her to find herself staring at these two pumpkins.
Gotta love dad jokes.
Let This Be A Warning To All
A cautionary tale for every husband out there who complains that their wife makes them do chores: this could be the fate that awaits you if you can't tough it out.
I don't know if this is a threat or a decoration...
"I needed some edible eyeballs for a halloween party snack. These were inside a larger bag."
This is just mean of the product designers to do. How hard is it to add a little food coloring to a white cake thing?!
This gets negative spooky points from me.
A Responsible Pet Owner Like Every One Else
She keeps her pets on a leash just like every other pet owner in the neighborhood, so no one seems to mind that her dogs look a little different than the neighbor's corgi.
Just as long as she cleans up their webs when they're done making them.
The Office Planning Committee Outdid Themselves
Your office party planning committee probably strung up some fake cobwebs, and maybe brought in a few plastic pumpkins to decorate the office.
This office, though? They went all out with a Jurassic Park theme.
Thomas The Tank Engine, But Make It Spooky
This person's neighbor is building a train in their front yard out of used plastic water bottles, but even a climate change statement piece of art can get a little dressed up for All Hallows' Eve.
The spooky doesn't stop with climate activisim.
You Never Know What You Might Find At A Thrift Store
If you feel like taking the DIY route for Halloween, the world is basically your oyster.
This woman took a plain old nativity statue (sorry, Mary, you were boring) and turned it into a great decoration with just a few dollars worth of paint.
You're Blowing My Mind
Your kids were going to put up a huge fight if you filled their plates with cauliflower come dinnertime so you might as well use it for something more productive.
He Can't Help That He Gets Hungry
It's not exactly the scary or hauntingly creepy Halloween theme that the rest of your neighbors were trying to achieve when they decorated their front porch with skeletons, but everyone has their own take on the holiday.
It's impressive and it makes us want to find some cookies in our candy bag.
