Since Halloween 2023 is quickly creeping upon us, we thought we’d ask a question designed to dredge the recesses of one’s darkest nightmares. Perhaps that’s a bit dramatic. It’s a simple question: What is the scariest thing you can imagine happening this Halloween?
For many people, the answer to this question does not enter the realm of the supernatural at all. Being chased by a creepy clown, being haunted by an angry ghost, or even discovering a monster living under the bed are not the things that scare most people. Not at all.
For a large percentage of those who love Halloween, the real horror is being unprepared. Or, worse yet, not having the best, the biggest, the most fun, or the most chilling Halloween display in the entire neighborhood. Because “dressing up” for Halloween doesn’t just mean putting on a pirate costume. It means dressing up your home, inside and out, to become a spook-tacular destination for your family and guests.
If Halloween is kind of like your Christmas, or if you really want to make your Halloween decor stand out this season, the list we’ve put together for this blog will not scare you at all. Whether it’s frightening fun or terrifying excitement you’re looking for, these are bound to deliver the tricks, and treats, that will thrill you. Enjoy 8 Halloween Decorating Ideas: Our Picks for 2023… if you dare!
