'Tis the season - Halloween Decorating

The previous topics have been a bit heavy so I desperately wanted to post on a light topic. And I heard on the news that this year, Halloween moved into first place for the holiday that Americans decorate the most for. Who knew?

Daley Plaza, downtown Chicago.

Owner occupied two-flat at Honore and Barry. If you look carefully, you'll see the windows lined with topical chotchke's in greater numbers than you can count. Every holiday is equally celebrated.

On Logan Boulevard just east of California. This house is a destination drive as the over-the-top decorating brings lookers from miles away.

On Damen at Barry near Hamlin Park. Note the careful application of TWO colors of fake spider webbing on the front bushes.
