Every year, one of my neighbors gets some rope and old sheets and hangs a little family of ghosts in his front yard. It looks spooky for all the wrong reasons.
What's great is that he does this in late September, so by the time Halloween rolls around they look pretty beat up and gross...and usually one or more of them is just lying on the ground. Can a ghost die?
I also like this because at least it's not one of those damn inflatable decorations that continue to be popular for some unknown reason.
