Scariest Halloween Decorations deedsphotos

Updated on October 14, 2016

It's Halloween

Halloween, also known as All Hallow's Eve, is celebrated in the United States and in many countries in Europe on October 31, the day before All Hallows' Day which initiates the time dedicated to remembering the dead including saints (hallows) martyrs and faithful departed Christian believers. The holiday is believed to have originated from pagan Celtic harvest festivals. Today, in the United States, at any rate, Halloween has pretty much lost it's religious connotation and become a commercial event. It's celebrated primarily by children who carve pumpkins, dress up in costumes and go from house to house begging for treats i.e., "trick or treating."

Here are some samples of Halloween decorations in Birmingham:

      Most enjoyable looking at these. So someone included Ted Cruz for Prez next to Koch, surely the scariest of all. Thanks for sending them my way.

      Nice stuff here. We are big into this too. I think a lot of people are. I just started a site displaying some of the things we have done. I will build it up as time goes on, but you can see some examples right now...

      Funny photos, Ralph. It appears we all agree on which one is the really scary one. Nice work.

      Ralph, great photos, and I agree with your other fans - Holy Excess, Batman! I do also agree that the first was almost the scariest. But there's something to be said for the people who use up McCain's resources papering their own whole lawn. Keeps the stuff from spreading quite so far!

      Thanks, all, for the kind comments. I wanted to move the McCain-Palin sign in the first picture over into the cemetery for a picture, but I was afraid I might get reported or shot for trespassing!

      Beautiful homes, Ralph. I'd be interested to see the exact same selection decked out for Christmas -- just to see how well they outdo themselves:-).
