Halloween Home Decorations…What Level are you?
With Halloween a couple weeks away, how much time and money will you invest in decorating your home? It can range from a single Jack-o-lantern on the front porch (level 1) to a home covered in scary stuff (level 10).
I set out this afternoon to see what Grand Junction had to offer. As I made my way through several neighborhoods, it became obvious that Junction isn't a Halloween decoration hot spot. Maybe I was in the wrong part of town, but I came across very little. I saw a couple scarecrows. A few ghosts hanging from tree limbs (I always found them a bit cheezy). And some of those inflatable pumpkins, but not much else. I never came across the "oh wow!" home.
Maybe there are some "Level 10" houses out there. Is your place one? If so, please share a picture on the 95 Rock facebook page. Maybe you're proud of your simple "Level 1" skeleton on the front door. You can share that too. The truth is, there's no wrong way to celebrate "All Hallow's Eve". A holiday that The National Retail Federation forecasts American's will spend, including candy, costumes, and decorations, will be about $7.4 billion this year.
As of today, I have nothing. Guess I better get my Jack-o-lantern carved and on the porch. I don't want to be accused of being a "Baugh Humbug" kind of neighbor. Sorry, wrong holiday. Maybe Junction will "wow" me at Christmas.
