When I was little, we used to buy a cardboard skeleton from the super market and hang it on the door for Halloween. We carved a couple pumpkins, put them on the doorstep with candles inside and I think, maybe we leaned an old-fashioned broomstick against the side of the house.

It was festive but certainly not labor intensive. It was pretty much what every house on the block did. Nobody felt like they had anything to prove.

Of course, we didn’t have Pinterest back then to show us all the amazing things we COULD be doing for Halloween. The elaborate pumpkin carvings and the DIY haunted house decor and the scary versions of all your favorite foods, with the potential to not only impress your neighborhood but the ENTIRE INTERNET.

Is it my imagination, or is Halloween trying to outdo itself every year? Is all this really happening in the real world or is it just happening online?

Who knows. In any case, it’s a lot of fun to look at.

Here’s what Halloween would look like if you left your neighborhood and trick or treated within the confines of a Pinterest board.
