Are you ready to decorate for Halloween?

Thu Sep 06, 2018 5:59 pm

I was wondering, are you ready to decorate for Halloween yet?

I plan on putting our orange and black light bulbs this weekend, since the weekend after labor day is my normal start. I will keep them up until the weekend after Halloween, where I will switch them to orange, yellow, and red bulbs for Thanksgiving.

Since I haven't started buying christmas gifts yet (see your other thread) I feel I should probably hold off on putting up halloween decorations still.

I've got a couple other events to go through first (kid birthdays etc) before I can start decorating for Halloween anyways.

Though my wife did decorate the inside of the house with general "fall" themed items. I suppose a couple of the items could be labeled as "halloween" as there is some overlap there. I think one item is a faux pumpkin. So maybe we have started decorating :white:

No, and neither will I ever be. We put up the lights for christmas, not some poorly invented idea of an 'event'.

Favorite holiday in our house, but the decorations don't go up until the first weekend in October, though due to the timing, it will be the last weekend in September this year.

No such thing as Thanksgiving decorations. Halloween comes down the weekend after, and Christmas goes up Thanksgiving weekend, first weekend of December, the latest.

Halloween, or some version of it, was being celebrated long before Christmas was "invented". And, realistically, all holidays are made up. We choose to commemorate what we choose to commemorate. And, if enough people do it, enough times, it becomes a holiday.

Why would anyone decorate for Halloween other than put a pumpkin on the doorstep, all the while taking side bets on how long it lasts before ending up smashed in the street?

I hate that many retailers have been minimizing the importance of Thanksgiving. I think Thanksgiving deserves time in the spotlight. Target had the right approach last year by not putting up Christmas decorations in the store until after Thanksgiving (they did start selling them before Thanksgiving, but the store wasn't decorated until after Thanksgiving). General autumn decorations can serve as Thanksgiving decorations as long as they don't look too Halloween-ish.

I just put up our light bulbs right now. For the first time tonight, I am going to do a test by arranging the bulbs in a different order than previous years by putting both orange bulbs by the garage and both black bulbs in the courtyard. However, if the courtyard is too dim, I will change them back to they way we have done it previous years with the alternating orange/black bulbs.

Actually in the USA isn't Halloween the biggest "non-holiday" celebrated? No day off or "official government recognition", but it is celebrated but the vast majority of the country.

Not talking retail sales stuff, just the effort and number off people who "celebrate" it. From people going to Halloweens parties (when it's on a Friday or Saturday these are even bigger), to families spending time getting costumes for kids (and their own), and now there are decorations but for a long time it was someone in the neighborhood who really did up their yard or house (we had a neighbor that did a haunted house each year)

I think Valentines Day is the second biggest followed Mother's Day. No day off for them (but I think Mother's Day is "official"?)

Well, just tried the two black light bulbs in the courtyard; almost didn't light up the courtyard at all. Just switched one of them with one of the orange bulbs by the garage.

Personally, I like that retailers have ignored the lead up to Thanksgiving, except as a lead in to the Christmas retail season.

I think that Thanksgiving is the correct holiday for family get togethers (if that’s your thing). There’s no obligatory gift giving tradition. No false or over-the-top religious “meaning”.

We always host my wife’s family, mine live 1000 miles away (though always get an invite), and some friends. We wind up with 30 or 40 folks through the day. Everyone knows that the dinner will be on the table by 3:00. Just show up, eat and be merry. If you need to go, you go without any fear of upsetting the host (me). It’s more of a party than a sit down affair.

The wife puts up a harvest type wreath sometime after Halloween. I guess that qualifies as “general autumn decorations”.

I couldn’t agree more. The bugs, the heat, the constant sweating it’s all around awful. Could never understand why people like that.

Not to be pedantic but Christmas, or some version of it, was also being celebrated long before Christmas was "invented."

Almost all christian religious holidays, Halloween included, have roots in earth seasonal cycles and moon phases (pagan and pre-christianity abrahamic traditions).

Actually, there are theories out there that suggest Christ was actually born sometime in October or November, and was "moved" so as not to interfere with the harvest festivals. Another theory suggests Christ's birthday was moved in order to supplant the pagan winter solstice celebrations.

Either way, I stand by my comment that all holidays are invented.

I really like Halloween as a holiday as it has a great focus on kids. The grandkids do dress up a bit but enjoy filling the bags we handout just as much as getting some candy. It's great to see the little kids that show up at the door and my wife is always there to see them in their costumes.

I go to Sams to get the big bags of candy as we generally go through 100+ handout bags. Well worth the costs, including the skeleton we bought at Home Depot and who spends the night in a lounge chair in the front yard.

Absolutely, we're in 100% agreement. Christ's birth date is really an unknown. We just picked the winter solstice to help absorb existing pagan holidays.

All holidays are invented. It's all politics in the end.

It looks like this year a lot more people in our neighborhood are putting up Halloween lights than in past years. Most people are doing just orange (some of them being flame flicker bulbs), although I did see one other house that put up blacklights as we did.

We have had our lights and decorations up for about two weeks now. New people across the street put theirs up yesterday, new children there also. First new children there in 50 years.

Seeing all those decorations months before the actual holiday is annoying. But, to come home to even more holiday decorations is awful. The brosband, however, thinks decorating is great and everyone should always decorate. He gets it from his mother.

Yep the Xmas lights go up in Sept these days it seems, I really wish they could find a way to monetize some other holidays so we at least get a break. How about a big sale for Halloween and trick us into buying gifts for it....

When I was a kid not that long ago there was no Halloween, only All Saints' Day, consisting of visiting a cemetery. I've stopped doing that, but not gotten on the Halloween bandwagon either. Retailers tried very hard to sell us this foreign tradition but it didn't pick up that much, so now they've toned it down. Still, I can expect some kids banging on the door, at which point I realize this is the day, and shut down all lights in the house !

Our C-9 strings are up until New Years. Orange until the Thanksgiving and multicolored old school twinklers until January. Stockpiled the new legit LEDs this year. They look awesome, but they came with a heavy price:

It would be best to CANCEL all these silly public "holidays". No more Halloween, no more Christmas, New Years, etc.
Instead, there should be a number of free days allocated to people so you can take off from work when YOU want. Not when the calendar says you should.

In fact, public "holidays" are racist and/or discriminatory in nature.
Why should Native Americans be forced to "celebrate" Columbus Day? Why should atheist be forced to "celebrate" Christmas Day"? Why should Buddhists be forced to celebrate "New Years Eve"?

@Dieuwer because financially for governments and companies it makes sense to have everyone off at the same time. A production line does not work well when a majority of your employees takes a vacation day. Better to just shut the factory down and give everyone the day off.

Most non-government employers don't give Columbus Day as a day off work (it is in fact the least popular of the federal holidays to give off), and I don't know anyone who gets Halloween off. The federal holidays that are observed by most non-government employers are New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

I wanted a full-size posing skeleton, but I am not about dish out $40...at least not this year. Maybe next year when I can count on storage space for seasonal items.

In the meantime, I settled for a $15 miniature posing skeleton which is perched on a window as if it's calling for help.

Considering election time is near, I should make it hold a poster with a political message.

Plenty of jobs out there where you can work a holiday, bank it, and take it later. Particularly in aviation.

We replaced our Halloween lights with orange, yellow, and red Thanksgiving lights last Saturday.

To my surprise, it looks like we might not be the only ones in the neighborhood with Thanksgiving lights. It appears that one of the houses that had the orange flame bulbs for Halloween replaced two of them with yellow ones.
