Halloween is right around the corner. You (hopefully) have your costume picked out already, and you're going to slay, obviously. If you’re really feeling the Halloween spirit this year, you’re probably thinking about decorating your house and yard, too. The houses with Halloween decorations outside usually have the best candy — not a candy corn kernel in sight. And, hey, if there are other houses who've been bitten by the Halloween decorating bug, a little competition never hurt anyone. Are you ready to take Halloween 2017 to the next level?
Alright my friend, not so fast. Just like costumes, some Halloween decorations have the potential to be extremely offensive. You wouldn’t dress up as a slave master, so you shouldn't decorate your yard like a plantation. One night of questionable or downright offensive decorating choices can make your neighbors side-eye you for the next 12 months, and nobody wants that. Simply being mindful of the decorations you choose will go a long way towards helping you have the most fun on Halloween you can. If you find yourself asking why you have to think about whether your Halloween decorations are offensive or not, just remember that Halloween is a holiday for everyone — you don't want to ruin someone else's fun with inappropriate, insensitive, or just plain offensive decorations. Ahead, you’ll find a list of Halloween decorations no one should display this year.
