More Ghosts from Halloweens Past

In a previous post I showed you some houses which had dressed up their yards for Halloween with exterior decorations.  Tonight, in the spirit of the quickly approaching holiday, I will show you more. This house really likes skeletons, though it appears ghosts are also welcome. For a better view, click any photo.

This house also seems to attract some creepy spiders. Young trick-or-treaters better be careful not to get caught in those spider webs. But once past the webs, they will still face the huge black spider and the skeleton who guards the door. I don't think I'd be brave enough to approach that door if I were five years old.

Up from the Grave
When I was in elementary school my mom loved Halloween. She used to put a jack-o-lantern head on a floor lamp, wrap a sheet around the rest of it, and keep it just inside the door. When she opened the door, it would be dark except for that ghost with the evil pumpkin head. I believe we also had creepy music in the background. It did scare quite a few of the youngest candy beggars. Fortunately, it wasn't as creepy as this decoration.

How do your very young children react when they see these kinds of scary sights?
