Decorating for Halloween?

Have any of you decorated for Halloween? I have done very little, and I mean very little decorating, although I planned (and still plan) to do more. I want to get some candy dishes, and put out some 'treats ' in my house, I also want to get some Halloween themed scented candles that can do double duty as Thanksgiving candles, so maybe something with pumpkin and spice scents. I've watched a few Halloween decor house tours on YouTube to get some ideas. Have to see how things develop decoration-wise in my house as the days go on:eyebrows:. I love the holidays:celebrate2:!!

I'm not into Halloween now, but it's harmless fun and I loved it when I was young. I hand out goody bags with candy, stickers, pencils, and erasers on Halloween night. We get very few trick-or-treaters. Maybe 10-20 mini monsters stop by our door. I have a pumpkin ready to carve when it gets closer to Halloween.

 

I bet your house will look positively spooky once you're finished decorating, @HighlyLogical.

We don't decorate the house unless it is for wedding anniversaries and surprise birthday parties. We don't celebrate the holidays, so we don't need to decorate the house.

@Poppy I like handing out candy too, but I did that in the past when I lived in a different place (more residential) than where I live now. Where I live now, I don't see many kids doing much trick or treating. I still like to buy candy for my own personal use though, after all, it is Halloween:eyebrows:.

 

@ShadowEdge It's been ages since I've carved a pumpkin. I buy them to use for decoration, but no carving gets done. A goody bag that includes stickers(!!), pencils(!!), that sounds fabulous. I would enjoy getting both of those things just as much as I would enjoy getting candy. As far as the spooky decorations go, I don't go full-on spooky... a few spooky bits here and there, the rest is more color-scheme, candles, and flowers.

 

@Zack T No decorations? That's understandable. I, on the other hand will take any excuse there is to do a bit of decorating. Give me any reason to go shopping to buy some new decor with matching wine glasses and some themed-type of drinks:whistling:, and I'm all for it.

 

@Incredible Iron You don't celebrate the holidays? I used to work with someone who told me that's how he and his family were, but unlike you they didn't celebrate birthdays. I wish I would have thought to ask him if he celebrated anniversaries, I'd be very interested in his answer.

I don't decorate even for Christmas, so nope. But I do like Halloween more than any other holiday.

I take the lazy way out. I leave the lights and ornaments on the tree, then gently carry it to the basement and cover it up to keep the dust off. All it needs the next year is a little bit of fluffing up.

Sorry to disappoint you, my friend. We just don't like all the commercialism that is entailed with the holidays. We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries because it reminds us of how we have been.
