Editor, this is written from my own experience and looking for what is new and exciting. There are no sources to site.
Ever wonder where the neighbors get the great Halloween decorations? Here are some of the places that the ‘cool’ neighbors get their information. Decorating for Halloween can be fun, and having a party for Halloween can be even more fun. Scaring or grossing out your guests can be priceless. Just think if you are a kid or a teen, invite the school bully, and watch him squirm or run in terror, and be sure to record him while he runs. He won’t look so terrifying when the whole school sees the video on the web the next day, will he? If you are an adult, you could invite your boss and let him look brave, or if he is not the boss of dreams, you could record him being grossed out or running for his life in terror. If you wish to keep the job you have though, putting it up on the company website may not be a wise idea, so share it with your coworkers at breaks on lunch or around the water cooler.. Just be careful not to show the boss’s pet in the cubical or desk down the way.
Seriously though, though these ideas are hilarious, really acting on them is NOT recommended. Unless you live on the wild side, but accomplish these ideas at YOUR own Risk. Halloween can be a time of fun and frolic. Here are some of the newest and great oldies found on the internet:
