Halloween Decorations in Hoboken
Yeah, yeah, I know – most people put Halloween decorations on their homes these days in Hoboken “for the kids.” But those fake spider-webs (probably made in China) just look awful! Like their laundry machine vomited out the window.
This web decoration is a little more tastefully done, but still unoriginal:
Being unoriginal is a missed opportunity for kids
Going to the store to buy pre-packaged Halloween Decorations (again, probably made in China), and copying what everyone else is doing is a bad lesson to teach children these days. It promotes the solution that you can buy everything “ready made,” and takes much of the “thinking” out of the equation (especially when it’s a clone).
There are a handful of very creative displays in town – most notably the one at 11th & Garden Streets. They put on an epic Halloween display every year. Looks like they brought back the “texting zombies” – which is as relevant as ever!
If you’re not going to put the effort into going “all out” like these people – perhaps ditching the horrible (probably toxic) fake webbing, and teaching your kids to do something unique out of some pumpkins might be a better idea. Less to clean up afterward, too!
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
