That's hilarious!

those ornaments are just fantastic!

I feel like the poor guy in the first photo...lol

I had no idea that you guys got into Halloween so much these days too.

I remember when I was young and it was just an American tradition, now it's everywhere.

Well it looks like you guys had a hugely fin day out!

Thanks so much for sharing.

ha ha ... yeah some of the houses go all out here although most just have lit pumpkins outside with a few scary decorations and have bowls of sweets on hand for the kids who call in their Halloween costumes. There is one house round the corner from us where the guy sits outside his front door as still as can be in a chair and he looks like a Halloween figurine ... until you get super close and reach for a sweet and he comes alive! My youngest almost died of fright the first time it happened. He was 6 at the time and he ran screaming down the middle of the road. Hubby had to chase after him quickly to make sure he didn't get run over by a car. Some houses entire fronts become Halloween houses and front yards and that's pretty cool.

Wow that's pretty mindblowing. How long has the UK been swallowed up in that phenomena?

lols see here. Seems it may have originated with the Celts and was later exported to the US.

Yes, I remember growing up here in the 70/80s and occasionally we would dress up for halloween, but only in primary shcool for a lark, it wasn't done anywhere else, just a day in Primary school, and not in the older classes either and America was always referenced as the beginnings of it...
