The word is out. K.C. Channel 5 News found him. The news station coverage of Bob’s house begins with the wicked clown face I presented on our blog on Oct. 1.
I love Halloween. Actually, I love all holidays. Give me a reason to celebrate and I am happy to join the fun. But my passion for the holidays is nothing compared to Bob’s. While he loves decorating for Christmas, as do many of our friends, he is unique in the wealth of decorations that fill his house before Halloween.
Bob’s house is intentionally creepy. It is filled with vampires, witches, spiders and other symbols of the holiday.
Skeletons in holiday attire, party outfits and wedding gowns are found in abundance. The skeletons are fake–
The coffins are real. Well, sort of. He paid to have multiple coffins built, in the line of coffins from the early West. Like everything else, they are decorated with colorful displays of ribbons, holiday lights and flowers. They are overrun with spiders and more (fake) skeletons.
The decorations are the highlight of a visit to his house at Halloween but he does not stop there. I have it on good authority (Bob) that he is preparing his special homemade goodies for the trick or treaters.
Are you ready for Halloween?
Thanks for “reporting” on Bob’s Halloween indulgence. I had never seen anything like it when I visited last year. I gave my son, who loves all things Halloween since living in Salem, MA, for a year, a peek at the house via a gift certificate for a massage. Didn’t know the TV crews would pay a visit, too, but it’s about time.
Thanks to Bob for a bunch of tricks and treats. Thanks, Sis, for sharing.
Vampire costume, very cool
