People are transforming their old Christmas trees into Halloween trees

Halloween is almost upon us. You all know what that means: time for trick-or-treating, eating candy, watching creepy movies, and dressing up in costume.

But one of the big aspects of the spooky time, which most people neglect, is the decorations. Nowadays, many houses fail to put up any Halloween decorations at all; instead justing leaving their home as it was. It's a real shame.

However, if you want to make a special effort this year, you could try blending this holiday with another one, to create an awesomely-gothic juxtaposition that's certain to be pretty dang striking.
