I'd say the 2/3 estimate proves true in my neighborhood. Anything from a single pumpkin to a large graveyard with a caged skeleton across the street. The leaves are almost done changing and all over the ground and it's been rainy and dreary here , so it really feels like Halloween.

How nice! We had an early snow 2 1/2 weeks ago, and all the leaves turned black or brown before they fell off. Previously, they had been beautiful fall colors. Today we got a major blizzarrd with ~15 " of snow, so there will be snow for trick or treating. This is metro Denver.

You can tell a lot about people and the things they value by what they do. We usually have a fall type decoration hanging on the door and nothing else. I purposely do not knock the spider webs from their hiding places for about a month before Halloween. When our children were young, we would have a pumpkin with a candle in it.

I have really never thought of Halloween as a time to celebrate, just endure and hope it goes away soon. I hate scary movies.

Do we live in a different South Florida? I was actually going to say I see a lot of nice displays this year.

I will have to go check out your neighboorhood. Unfortunately, my neighboorhood is bare. The radio station I listen to is out of WPB and they mentioned there weren't many decorations up in their area either, but the DJ, who is from Ohio, said ppl tend to go all out more often up North, hence my reason for this thread. Have a great Halloween!

I have seen decorations not only in my area but all over the place, in Plantation, Davie, Cooper City, Miramar, Hollywood, everywhere and more than in previous years. Have a safe and happy Halloween as well!

Fort Myers being full of gated, deed restricted communities and senior citizens there is very little Halloween here.

Deed restrictions prohibit Halloween decorations in many of the communities here, and the gates on every road keep trick or treaters out.
