Fright night

New Orleanians love Halloween. I've had people here tell me they enjoy Halloween more than Mardi Gras. Everywhere you go there are spookily decorated houses, like this stately house in the Garden District bearing the spectre of death.

Or this French Quarter beauty sporting ghosts and giant spiders.

Down here in the Bywater, with its artists and hipsters, Halloween decor is a little edgier, like this house on Piety Street with a (fake) stuffed deer hanging on the porch, and skulls impaled on the agave.

But over on Burgundy Street, there's a Halloween house that's truly spectacular:

Behold the Scary Clown Halloween House!

 A skeleton wearing Crocs. How creepy is that?
Hope they give out Snickers!

Yikes! The scary clown house for the win!
There was a house a few blocks from mine that had a deer hung just like that one. Glad to know it was just a Halloween decoration!
