    I am downsizing my house and have no room for Halloween stuff. Free tombstones for local pickup in Sudbury MA, USA. Approximately 4 feet tall. Sorry to post in a second forum but I wanted to get extra visibility to see if I can find them a home before they hit the landfill.

    For Halloween this year I repeated a light show in which Halloween and Christmas fought for control of the house ("Christmas Comes Too Soon, or, Halloween Fights Back.")

    Okay, I have a really big box. It is cardboard, but I could dress it up a little. It is heavy and thick and sits on a pallet. Dimensions are probably 3.5x3.5 and 5.5ft tall. What is the easiest way to make it shake with a 'do not open, dangerous animal inside' type of vibe? (In my head it...

    For those with tall outdoor pumpkin scarecrows, sentinels, etc ... is there a consensus best ways to illuminate them?
