Went driving around my neighborhood to check out if my neighborhood is stepping up to the plate, counted 9 houses with decorations albeit some were minimal but at least they had something.

How's it coming along in your area?

My neighbors across the street made a giant sign that says boo and blinks on and off. They said we inspired them to put something up. Yay! Spreading the Halloween gospel!

Several people around my neighborhood have been putting more stuff out ever since my display got big and popular. I've managed to stay the biggest and best because I've just been doing it for so long, but a neighbor down the street from me swears he's going to "beat me out" one year. Good luck pal. :rolleyes:;)

My neighborhood is usually pretty dark on Halloween, sadly, but I have a few of them that have started doing a little bit of decorating now. Nothing major, but I'm happy they are doing something, at least!

A few pumpkins;etc but I'm the only one that goes.All Out!, so with the weather being lousy I have to get things ready the week of. There are lot of young families in the neighborhood, who have explained to me that their kids will not come to my front door for fear of the display. Wait until this year with the new Wall Climbing Possessed Girl prop and the other new goodies, at the base of our attached garage! I will post photos of the new goods, once completed! Good luck in your neck of the woods.

We'll there are 5 houses about a block away that put on good haunts each Halloween. However the neighbors on each side of me no longer put a lot up, on the plus side one has given me permission to expand into her yard. Overall the entire neighborhood has really gotten into Halloween compared to when I moved in a few years ago.

Ever since we moved to our neighborhood I've noticed a lot of the kids in my neighborhood wanting to decorate their yards after seeing mine! Every year I see some new things in their yards, but this year I haven't noticed one house decorated yet! Getting a little nervous now!

We have some folks that get into it in our immediate subdivision, but nothing on a major scale. I do have to admit, however humbly, that my being the "Halloween guy" has inspired a few others to get more into the season though.

No one else on my street but a little bit going up a couple of streets over. Quite a few pumpkins on doorsteps and a hanging ghost here and there. Nothing even close to what I do (I hate saying that because it sounds so cocky and I don't mean it that way) but anything is better than nothing. Oh - there is this one house with some thanksgiving stuff out! Not sure if it's some kind of protest or what as they are new in the neighborhood. I just hope they won't add to the numerous dark houses we already have on Halloween night.

I've only counted two houses besides mine with any significant Halloween decorations. A few have put out Fall themed flags and wreaths and such. I really wish our area would get into the spirit. Everyone lets loose for Christmas but not Halloween. Very sad.

Not too many on my street. But a few over one does a really nice display. Her neighbors across the street did something and then down the street. I made a comment on facebook about how nice their street was and sure enough several more did it. Perhaps people just need a little positive encouragement.

It's always been just us for years. Last year some new people did a few things to their house. This year, the newest people are going full out which encouraged the other people to add so there will be 3 of us. Right now our grave yard is up with some things hanging in the trees that can get wet. I'm not putting up any more spider webs until right before because we are supposed to,get a lot of rain in the next week.

I was so excited to see the new neighbors across the street put out blow mold jack-o-lanterns! For 5 years we've been the only house to decorate for like a 2 block radius. Consequently we don't get very many ToTers.

Then our next door neighbors put up one string of changing lights (purple/orange) and really small hanging skeletons above their doorway. YAY!!!

Neighbor two houses down has a great display. Graveyard and multiple skeletons hanging about plus a spider hanging off the peak of their garage.

Sadly, mine looks tame by comparison. For now.

Nobody has done anything big, but mostly everyone does something. This will be our 3rd Halloween in the neighborhood. I haven't had any complaints, only encouragement from our neighbors. I love where I live so much!

Only a handful of houses in my neighborhood have minimal decorations out.

My landlord (who lives next door) is doing a walk-through haunted maze in his backyard,
so that will bring in quite a few people and TOTs on Halloween night. Of course I decorated the
front of the house I live now in but it's rather tame in comparison to how I decorated last year.

At least a few people get into the Halloween spirit. Some might decorate closer
to the actual day of though, like they did last year and the year previous. (same neighborhood)
