Aloha Friday - Holiday Decorating


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

With Halloween just around the corner, I've been busy putting up glowing window silhouettes, staining and tearing curtains for our front porch, buying pumpkins and making signs for the front of the house.  Of all the holidays, Halloween is my absolute favorite for decorating our home.  There is just something about the architecture of old historic homes that make them ideal for a spooky setting each Halloween.


By the time October 31st rolls around, our house has been transformed into a Halloween Haven.  I've watched cars stop out front after making a special trip to let their little ones knock on our door and I've had parents photograph their children enjoying our spooky decor (probably for their blogs Lol!).


How about you.... what holiday is your favorite when decorating the outside of your home?

You should just invite them in to talk to your little live-in spook if they want a real thrill.

Is ashame it doesnt help out with the Halloween festivities.

We go big with decorating for the holidays around here but I'll say Christmas is my favorite. We hang Santa sleigh and reindeer from wires and have carousels and ferris wheels. Love it!

Definitely Christmas. We don't do a lot of outdoor decorating for any other holiday.

Halloween for outside ~ mostly I just do pumpkins and Jack-o-Lanterns, but ALOT of them! At Xmas, we only do lights a two big bushes and a beautiful wreathe on door and a lantern with big red candle on porch ~ but the INSIDE at Xmas is amazing - I have way too much stuff! But love it anyhow! :-)

I don't decorate outside my home at all.

But I LOVE Christmas.

I love to decorate the house at Christmas the most because it was a childhood favorite time of year to go around and see what everyone had done in lighting up their homes and businesses to celebrate the Holiday.

We do alot at the ranch for our Halloween party... but as Alex gets older I am sure Christmas light will be a big production!!

I love decorating for fall and then for Christmas. I don't do a Halloween theme specifically (in spite of Princess Nagger nagging me to do so) I prefer to keep it fairly generic so it can last through Thanksgiving before being switched out to the mega Christmas decor I do. ;)

From the sounds of it, I bet Princess Nagger would rather live at your house during the Halloween season... ;)

We don't really decorate outside the house. We could do Halloween, but the weather is so wacky around here. Thanks to celebrating Chanukah, we never have to worry about going crazy with Christmas lights ;)

Thanks so much Deb for stopping by today and joining our blog hop! I am already following but until the list gets too big I want to try and personally answer each person who "links" up! I appreciate the time it takes to come by. See you next week!
