  1. Halloween Props
    Work is about to get ugly for me so I need to start my decorative planning pretty quickly. I have limited storage room for any newer items so I am trying to make things as tiny as possible. As the title says, I am thinking about a foldable coffin. If I were to build one (not for actual human...

    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?!

  12. General Halloween
    I was curious what the consensus is for outside decorations.* Since Halloween items begin to go on sale as soon as Memorial Day is over, when do you like to start letting everyone know you are "open for business" in October? We've been doing about three weeks out from October 31st. Does...

    I posted some 2018 Videos http://www.snydercentral.com/halloween/H2018/H2018.htm It was the saddest start ever but it got better. The old standby props saved the day. The new stuff all got crammed into the garage. We woke up the next day with the Flu that made packing the stuff up extra fun...

  19. General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...
