Fabulous Fridays: Get in the Halloween Decorating Spirit

Halloween is round the bend! Spooky spooky! What a fun time of year. I am telling you, I think starting about now is probably my favorite time of year. No more summer vacations for me, so I just uped this to my favorite time of year spot. I’m a huge fan of fun and creative décor for Halloween. A little creepy and a little creative touch around your home to honor this time of year is awesome.  I am super into the funny and spooky part of the Halloween. The sexually oppressed part where people want to express themselves one day that year, not so much. Hopefully one day, the ladies and gents will leave their Little Bo Peep delicates in the closet.J Here are a few home decorating inpspirations for your home. Enjoy!












WHalloween fun factW
So back in the day, Pagans used to burn jack-o-lanterns on Samhain to ward off evil spirits. Samhain, being on the night of the 31 of October. Not to name names, but cultures, religions plunked other holidays, such as Halloween on top of Pagan holidays to crowd out and overshadow Pagan celebrations. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas and Halloween, but come on dudes, that’s mean. Anyways, if you are interested in a little history of the jack-o-lantern, Better Homes and Gardens has a very interesting (and short) article.




How do you like to decorate for Halloween?

  1. Hey I'm really feeling more and more that 'halloween feeling' in the air, especially when I check out your fun halloween posts. I love your tidbits of historical pagan info too, it's really interesting where all this came from--it's not all just a modern commercial ploy. I'm also wondering about those candied apples (there's at least one in the group anyway!)...what the heck is that black stuff? or maybe it's better to let the spooks give those a try...*S* Those are creepy skeleton table decorations too! Britt, you make me want to go carve a pumpkin right now! Think I could get my cat to sit still long enough to pose for me? *W*
