4 Types of Fall Decorators: Which One Are You?
1. Fall Festival
2. Crap Fest
3. Party Pooper
4. House of HorrorsWhy would anyone want to make their home look like the gateway to hell?
Whether it's zombies emerging from the ground, blood stained rocks from corpses, demonic phantoms that talk like Beelzebub, severed limbs, or animated props that make your heart skip a beat, this kind of decorator believes the scarier, the better.
Some even use diabolical clowns in the "spirit" of Halloween, as if clowns aren't already in their own category of creepy year-round.
Just think of that next time you go to the circus.
I would insert more images here to give you the gist of how spectacularly gruesome some houses become for this spooky celebration, but then you would never be able to "un-see" it.
Your eyes are the window to your soul, and Halloween offers snapshots many of us could do without.
Considering most trick-or-treaters are pre-school and elementary-aged, many parents don't appreciate the nightmares their kids experience from such harsh images piercing their little souls.
Some decorators offer tamer spectacles, like covering their homes with spiders.
As a person who shrieks at the sight of a tiny, hopping spider and becomes a human wrecking ball to smash it, I'm not sure how anyone could sleep at night in a house like this.
