It was two weeks before Halloween and I was walking through my grandparents neighborhood admiring Halloween decorations on people's lawns. Everyone had unusually extravagant decorations. My grandparents had a giant jack-o-lantern with a disturbing face. There was another giant decoration. The porch light was on and I considered walking to their house, but something beckoned me to continue through the neighborhood. I was thinking about how I don't buy decorations because I consider it a waste of money.
