Halloween can be expressed as a mathematical equation. Much like the Powerpuff Girls, Halloween is made up of three parts (plus an accidentally-added extra ingredient to the concoction — Chemical X). First, there are the costumes — not much of a holiday without pretending to be courageous heroes and nefarious villains! Next, of course, there’s the candy. Delicious. Sweet. Deliciously sweet. Finally, there are the spooky decorations, without which Halloween would be just another cosplay party where we binge on chocolate.
In the final rush towards Halloween, Bored Panda brings you the most creative, the most original, the very best decorations to show you how some people go all-out for the scariest of nights! Upvote your fave decorations and share the link with your friends and family for some inspiration that doesn’t revolve around carving pumpkins into Jack-o’-lanterns.
Scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with the foremost expert on Halloween on Earth, author Lesley Bannatyne. We talked to her about the meaning of Halloween and how it can be as much about silliness and having fun as it is about seriousness and darkness.
