You are driving down the street and see a huge 20 foot + tall ugly dead tree in the middle of an empty field and say to your husband " Hey that would be the PERFECT tree for our front yard"

On that note. Can someone have you committed for being to obsessed with Halloween, asking for a friend?

You know you’re a haunter if.....

You have a drawer somewhere designated for the spiders, fake body parts, bits of creepy cloth, and other items you missed in the ‘great packing up’ every year.

You have ever told someone ‘just put all those skulls in the box with that one skeleton. They’ll fit right alongside the ribs perfectly.’

You spent Easter Saturday working on Halloween projects while the kids dyed eggs. The kids don’t find that at all out of the ordinary.

You get ‘the prop you’ve been drooling over’ for your birthday. In June.

All you want for Christmas is foam sheets and HDs werewolf. Or headless horseman. Or..... :rolleyes:

...You wake up in a cold sweat in April from a dream where Halloween went terribly, horribly wrong. You run out of candy, you didn’t finish any of your projects, you forgot to put your old props out, you had to work super late, you forgot to buy pumpkins or forgot to carve them... etc. Then you realize its April and you are happy because you have 6 months until Halloween. Then you panic again because its only 6 months until Halloween and you have so much to do...

I get a version of this dream multiple times every year. Ive had it ever since I was young. Then, I would have forgotten to get or make a costume, or we would somehow miss Halloween and trick-or-treating. Seriously, nightmares.

the electrician comes to fix your circuit breaker (which you blew on Halloween) and you hear a scream from the other room when he opens the closet and sees a zombie

You’re painting blood on a guillotine and the mailman says “it’s that special time of year”

If you’re more excited for your liquid latex order than your new iPhone

If the girl who works at spirit Halloween knows the guys who sold you the store display trees 2 years ago.

If you’re out of red food coloring

You know you're a home haunter if....

...you slow down to look every time you see a pile of stuff left out by one of your neighbors for bulk pickup, to see if there's anything you can use to make props.

...you're running to Home Depot/Lowes once a week in August, twice a week in September, and nearly every other day in October.

...you immediately know what someone is talking about when they say things like "monster mud", "cauldron creep", "blucky", "grave grabber", "breathing grave", and "flying crank ghost"

You run to Michaels in your PJs to get a can of summer green stained window spray paint 30 minutes before the close!

A father comes to your house to shake your hand because when his wife and kid got home, all they could talk about was how scary this house was and he had to come see it for himself.

You know you're a haunter when....

People constantly tell you that they thought of you when they saw (insert random Halloween, horror, or other related item here).
Your co-workers ask how the haunt build is going... In April.
Your co-workers and friends constantly ask if you're going to work at the Halloween store again this year... Even though you only worked at one once and that was over 5 years ago.
You ask prospective landlords how they feel about Halloween when looking for a place to rent. (they like Halloween and they help decorate every year)
You don't even mention the Halloween convention, but everyone remembers it's in the spring and they ask you about it every year.
People save pieces for foam for you.
You are asked by your local library to teach a class on how to decorate for Halloween.
The people at Lowe's just assume everything you are buying is for Halloween.
You are introduced to new co-workers as "that person who is really into Halloween."

All of these are true... I'm not sure what that says about me.
