For DECADES, mothers and fathers alike have used the 31st of October as a start to wage war on your hood. To seize victory over your neighbors, and claim complete supremacy of your stomping grounds. Why, do you ask? For one simple reason. You go big, or you go home on Halloween. Come on. If there is one reason to transform your living domicile into a living, breathing, spectacle, it’s Halloween!
Sure, there is that “merry” holiday we do not speak of around this time. In fact, our favorite holiday of Halloween has seen Christmas’ big Santa boot come down, and take over the store shelves in our town. In some instances, they’ve come as early as late September. But, there is one thing Christmas decorations cannot stop.
I’m talking about the front yard. Look outside your window right now. The front yard is a sacred place. Where parents make their stand, and claim their right as the residential bad ass of your neighborhood. Is yours bare? Starting to feel some shame, are we?
Do you see where I’m going with this? Of course you do! We’ve been together this long, so you sure better know that Halloween front yards are the time to lose your shit. Where Christmas get’s your good side, Halloween front yard displays are where you get to let loose and let your inner demons scream! Halloween front yard decorations have only gotten better, and better with time. Long passed are the ghosts in the tree’s, with dad using a pulley system to bring them to life. Now, animatronics, and projections are all the rage. Not to mention, they’re relatively inexpensive (welcome to the future).
Luckily, we don’t have to send bucket loads of money traveling the world trying to find these amazing front yards. We have the interwebz for that! So let’s take a look at your pictures and videos from the gram. Let’s see what those neighborhood Halloween front yards look like this year. GIVE IT TO ME!
Wow, you guys! Keep up the good work, because these houses look great, right? Like I said, go big, or go home. To be honest, there’s no humility in decorating your Halloween front yard. You may be a minimalist, you could be a techie, you’re probably going to go over the top. Guess, what?! WE LOVE YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! It doesn’t matter how you do it, we just love THAT you do it! So tag those pictures with #HorrorBuzzYards and let’s see how you rule the roost this year!
Happy Halloween everyone! and happy birthday to me ;)
