When to Start Decorating For Halloween

Based on trends from previous years, the most popular time to start decorating for Halloween is within the first two weeks of October. However, you can start putting up decorations as early as late September if you're eager to harness the spirit of Halloween. There's nothing wrong with getting ahead of the game and busting out your outdoor skeletons and Halloween witch decorations before your neighbors. If you're planning a visit to Disney World during Halloween, you can expect to see decorations up as early as August.

Who Has the Most Halloween Sprit?

Fun fact, statistically Utah has the most Halloween spirit out of all 50 U.S. states. Illinois, New Jersey, Texas, and New Mexico round out the top five.
One neighborhood that goes above and beyond with Halloween decorations is the city of Sleepy Hollow in New York. Known for its infamous Headless Horseman legend, this neighborhood takes Halloween to new heights. As soon as October hits, the entire city transforms into a real-life haunted village. Streets are lined with intricately carved pumpkins, scarecrows, and other spooky decorations. Every house seems to outdo the other with elaborate Halloween displays, featuring everything from animated skeleton bands and oversized spiders to haunted graveyards. The neighborhood even holds a month-long Halloween festival with parades, haunted hayrides, and ghost tours, drawing visitors from all over the country. It's a sight to behold and definitely a must-visit for Halloween enthusiasts.
