Halloween Comes to the Village
Every year our neighbors somehow manage to top themselves when Halloween comes around.
It’s always great when the temperature dips just low enough to make a sweater necessary. It’s a perfect time to take a walk to check out all the new decorations, especially since all of the leaves are changing as well. It’s definitely one of our favorite days of the year.
Some opt to make their brownstones look like something right out of a Vincent Price film—complete with spider webs and gravestones—while others keep it simple with just a tasteful Jack-o-Lantern.
A personal favorite this year is the house positively overrun by a gang of terrifying pumpkins that are carved in a non-traditional, but brilliant, way.
Even a few of the storefronts get in on the fun. Marc Jacobs typically has classic horror villains modeling his latest collection in his windows, whereas Magnolia Bakery has put up faux tombstones in theirs.
Does your neighborhood put up any creative decorations?
P.S: Last year’s decorations!
