This was my first Halloween in my neighborhood in Danbury and I did not know what I was in for. This guy is just a few streets down from me. He had everything, skeletons, scary music and a complete graveyard. I had to get a real close look in this casket because it was so realistic.

I talked to him for a few minutes about why he would put in so much work and he said he just likes the reactions from the kids. I think though that the adults were even more impressed. There was a lot to look at up and down each street in our neighborhood but this guy took the cake.

It's one of those rare occasions where you actually get face to face with your neighbors and have real conversations with them. It was nice, like the old days. We all could use more of that.
