My DC: Happy Halloween?

This is a house across the street from where I live. Clearly, these folks dig Halloween — this display has gotten bigger each of the three years I’ve lived in my current apartment. Now, I love a good holiday display, but spiders? Ugh. I seriously hate spiders, so I can’t help but wish I had neighbors who are deeply into pumpkins, instead.

(I hope the photos look ok — I am loading this entire post, photos and all, from my phone, so they aren’t color-corrected or cropped.)

Updated to make the photos bigger. The full creepiness of the spiders was kinda lost in the miniaturized versions the iPhone application loaded.

    That display should ensure that they get very few trick or treaters! EEEEKKK! (Photos came out great!)

    I could never get Jesse to do something like this.

    I actually kind of like that display. But OMG I can’t imagine the effort needed to put it together. At least it’s not corny like some displays in my neighborhood.

    @ Hillary – Very true; it clearly takes a ton of effort because it is really well done. If it were anything other than spiders, I’d probably love it!

    I just showed this to a friend at the office & she could not quit saying “OMG”, “OMG” — loves it 🙂 Question from Annie: Do they light it up at night?

    @ Mom — Yep. They have a flickery, strobe-like light on it at night. It’s really well-done and high-quality; it’s just the theme I don’t like.

    The first thing I thought was “Ew! Sarah must HATE HATE HATE this with the spiders and all”….as I was the roommate who had to come kill the spiders all the time. 😉

    Even my daughter squeal “EWWWWWWWWWWW” when she saw it. But then said, “That’s cool. How did they do that?”

    It is neat. How original? But I don’t think even I could live under that. Ick.

    Can you take a night picture?

    I’m with you Sarah…Hate those spiders! Meg kills all ours when J’s not home. Lauren and I go all girly and freaky when those things are crawling around.

    Ummm…what’s your costume decision?????

    LOVE IT…so do the kids! The light at night would be a little creepy for two of the kids, but the other would get excited.
