We used to get a lot of local kids here. Everyone in our neighborhood would decorate and give out candy. But we live a few miles up the highway from the city. Several years ago we started getting car loads of city kids coming through. With these new kids the area started getting a lot of vandalism and Halloween displays missing or destroyed by the end of the night. Many older kids 16, 17 years old would just drive from one house to the next not paying attention to the little kids on the road. Many kids not wearing customs. Only took 2 years of this and now no one decorates or gives out candy any more. I was the only house on our street to give out candy for a few years. I just didn't put up decorations for about two years.
I started putting up decorations again the past two years but the damage is already done. Our area is now known as a bad spot. I think we had a dozen kids last year. And I did the whole front yard in decorations. Been upping my game every year hitting up the 90% off clearance sales. Still going to do it again this year even knowing we won't get a lot of kids. The couple kids that do go through will have a spooky time.
Quoted from Atari_Daze:
So if a white person wears an actual Obama mask, is he racist?
Or is it just poking fun of the head of our government much like the satire of SNL and their portrayal of the current pres?
I mean there are other presidential masks too.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
I think you're smart enough to know the answer to this....
