Our 1st year up here in WA we couldn't decorate because of the way our townhome we lived in was situated, and no one in the immediate area even bothered to do anything for Halloween...we finally asked someone out walking a dog and found out "Oh they are all down on Capital Way" so we drove on down there...it was a blast. That whole neighborhood in Olympia goes all out, it's like a block party over many many blocks. Wandering musicians even. Pumpkin art contests, charities, kids and adults wandering around taking it all in...

As much as I love to decorate, I think even if it doesn't work out we can always find something fun to do! I told my husband, if the neighbors would take offense, it's not worth starting a war, we'll just drive on over to Manitou or something. I bet they have crazy fun over there!

I have friends who would be up in arms, maybe even eager to offend the very religous...I on the other hand think that people's spiritual beliefs are a little more important than my goofball cemetery and spiderwebs and well...I just don't dig drama. So much easier to respect those as were there first as opposed to stomping all over people's sensibilities...and I'm assuming that a Greek Orthodox Church would not necessarily want skull-ville setting up next door LOL... I'll just talk to the neighbors before the time comes and find out.

I'm from a bigger city so to me even the bad parts of the Springs are pretty tame compared to where I am from. The only thing I can say about that area is there will be potholes and cold windy weather and not a lot of culture (but that is true of all of the Springs, again compared to where I am from). That will be the biggest factor for you unless you are a conservative, keep to yourself type with a 4WD and you like to stay inside from November to April. Good Luck!
