Halloween Spiders

The Halloween Spider

If you are interested in Halloween Spiders, you may want to have a friend sit with you while you visit this page.

When one thinks of spiders, they get the creeps. Eight legged freaks that jump, crawl, parachute, run, attack, and just about everything a creepy arachnid would do. Spiders are mysterious, some are poisonous, others are a nuisance.

Spiders hide in corners, hang out in the dark, lurk in the shadows, webs. Lots of spider webs. They all bite, and they all crawl. Due to its very nature, it is often associated most with Halloween.

Welcome to The Halloween Spider. .

What Is A Halloween Spider

To me, all spiders are Halloween Spiders. Spiders that scare you to death. The kind you find crawling on you when you wake up out of a deep sleep. The kind that jump out of the laundry room at you when you pick up a rug on the floor. Big, ugly, long legged fanged things that jump when you try to hit them. They silently hang over your head and attach themselves to your hair as you walk through the woods. Halloween Spiders live everywhere. I've seen webs span from one yard to another, from one tree to another high off the ground.


Halloween spiders can be small, too. They can be white with booty feet, hanging out silently alone, or spiders can be tiny web-hanging in packs. You can be working at your desk and all of a sudden you notice the ceiling crawling. Then, before you know it, you find yourself surrounded by a miniature spider swat team - spiders so small you can barely see them. Big or small, spiders are scary creatures.

The Scariest Halloween Spider On YouTube

Then there are others who like Halloween Spiders so much they keep them as pets. Take "Boris The Spider," for example. The YouTube video below is not for the squeamish. It is morbid and deadly (at least it is to the spider's prey.) you are an older person, you may want to keep this video away from the kids. It is pretty scary.


Some people do not find spiders scary at all, and embrace the art of the arachnid and accept it for what it is. Many people, like me, are not fond of spiders, but know their purpose in the garden is one of value. Some people like the Halloween spider 'look.' that is Gothic in nature.

Below are examples of Halloween Spider items that are available on Amazon. Although some may find Gothic d├ęcor a bit on the dark side, decorating the house like Lily Munster can be appealing in that Halloween spiders from Amazon don't bite.

      Yikes! Spiders! They give me the creeps! My mom said one crawled in her mouth while she was sleeping! Yikes! At 2 am, one summer evening, my daughter and I crept upstairs to bed (after staying up late watching scary movies). She flipped on the light to her bedroom and on the wall was a huge drain spider. Yikes! Spider! (^..^)
