Lighten up?

Halloween Spook House? Nope, right in the front yard and close to an elementary school where children walk, or are driven to and from every day. Controversial? You bet! The comments to the news postings are pretty much split on this subject. One group of people say it's too much, too graphic, too hard on the children that see it. Another group of people say these folks are within their rights, name calling the nay-sayers, and they should grow a pair. I didn't read all the comments, but one person actually said screw the kids. I will say that it sounded like a lot of the comments for the yard art were from teenagers and non-parents, though not all. I will say that most of the commenters that think it's great, cannot spell and use a potty mouth.


Somehow, in light of all the events happening in the news, I don't think it is the wisest move to have something like this on display in your yard for over three weeks. That is just my opinion. I say they are well done, although not appropriate where little kids will see on a daily basis. Would be great in a spook house or for a backyard party. 

For those who think this display is all fun and after all this is Halloween and we should suck it up - please tell me how a small child is supposed to UNSEE THIS?

    1. I can't see what is "Fun" about the way some people do Halloween. I don't generally comment on things like this, people don't seem nice anymore. We are truly going down the tubes.

  2. I saw this on the news today. Reminds me of some people here one year put a badly wrecked car in their front yard with a fake body half in and half out of the car, I'm really not in favor of these.

    1. Nope, I am not in favor of this stuff, mainly for the little kids who see and keep it to themselves, ending up having nightmares. Remember when some (I don't know what to call the) put broken razor blades and pins in the candy? After that event we only went to our neighbor's houses, and then I still checked it over.

  3. Considering it's so close to schools. No I would not think it's appropriate. I'm all for freedom of speech and artistic freedom but just because you can do something doesn't mean you should

    1. Read some comments about getting together and going over there to take care of it. Sigh ... I hope they don't.

  4. I agree with you Sharon. If my granddaughter were to see this in passing, she would probably have nightmares...

    1. The impaled "kid" is scary enough for me, can't imagine how a little kid would process that.
