Do you decorate for Halloween

Having just returned from Disneyland Paris and seeing all the Halloween decorations I got a bit excited and bought some decorations. I can't wait to put them up.

So I wanted to know if any one else decorates for Halloween?

I'm not a fan of Halloween, I never have, even as a kid, though I love seeing everyone's photos of their decorated houses and pumpkins and it was fun buying gifts for the DIS Halloween exchange

Have fun putting your decorations up, I hope you will all post some pics

I love Halloween and usually put up a few bits and bobs ... because of the total mess my house is in at the moment I won't be doing anything at all ... but hope to start doing proper US style decorating from 2013 onwards when I have my new rooms all kitted out. Look forward to seeing your photos everyone.

We used to decorate a little and have a party when the kids were small. But we always made sure they weren't visible from outside the house because I don't like random "trick or treaters" that I don't know from Adam calling.

We used to decorate our conservatory



but disconnect our doorbell for the night so that the constant ringing didn't annoy the dogs!

Love the picture.

For the first time EVER we had trick or treaters last year. When I lived at home mum and dad live down a very dark and might I add scary lane so no one bothered. Then DH and I lived in a flat on the 2nd floor I guess no one wanted to walk all those stairs.

I do worry about the knocking on the door late as the front door is under DD's bedroom and she will not sleep if she thinks she is missing out on a party.
