I do a Haunted Porch every year. I have a 6ft tall talking skeleton dressed as a butler welcoming the tricksters, a screaming doormat, talking witch head and bald man head, flying ghost with flashing eyes, coffin, child size skeleton, a graveyard, spider webs with spiders, cauldron, and a fog machine. Anyone who is brave enough to come to my house gets candybars. I'm the big hit of the holiday.
I dress different every year: Witch, old lady with a baby hanging on my back (my head's the baby's), monster, and death. I wear a voice changer so I'm extra spooky.
My nieces and nephew love to join in every year to scare people. Last year my brother sat in tent with a monster mask and grabbed nearby people. Lol!
We have a great time!
