I guess I'm just decoration crazy. At Halloween, my house looks like the Haunted Mansion. We have a ghost bride in the center upstairs window, and in the yard we have a graveyard with funny tombstones, a skeleton wedding, and on the porch we have a scarecrow family with 2 baby scarecrows. The inside gets all decked out with my vintage Halloween collection. We try to keep it harmless, because so many very young children come to get candy on Halloween. No gore, and just a little scary.
After Halloween, while I'm on the chairs and ladders taking everything down, I'm also putting up all the Christmas lights. Colored lights and wreaths in the windows, lights on the porch, lights in the yard, a Nativity scene, the whole nine yards. I'm the only person in my neighborhood who decorates, and I'm sure my neighbors think I'm nuts, but who cares. It's a lot of fun to come home to after a long day's work!
Every Christmas should begin with the sound of bells....
