I am not sure if it is because I have a three year old or if it is because I have never liked anything scary, but either way I have been very aware of other people’s Halloween decorations this year. Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween! In fact, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! However, I prefer my Halloween to be more PG than rated R. I prefer watching It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown versus any horror movie of your choosing. I prefer little kids dressed up as their favorite cartoon character versus older kids who are dressed up to scare people. And I prefer Halloween decorations that are family friendly versus those that promote fear.
I am not saying that people shouldn’t decorate how they want to for Halloween. I am just saying they should think about the message they are sending and making sure it is the message they want to send.
There is one house in particular in my neighborhood that I feel is crossing the line with their Halloween decorations. Take a look for yourself.
Do you see what is bothering me? Look closer at the window. They have a doll stroller hanging off the window with a baby doll hanging out of it. Is that really necessary? What message does that send?
There is another part of their Halloween display that disturbs me as well, although I did not get a picture of it to show you. They have what appears to be an mini porch swing that is elevated off the ground. At night they put a baby that looks like a zombie inside it. Again, is that necessary?
So what do you think? Do you think these people are crossing the line with their Halloween decorations or do you think I am being to sensitive. Let me know what you think!
