23. In SF, the Halloween parties in the Castro

became big in the 1980s. Then adults in general celebrating Halloween just seemed to get more and more common.

ITA that the over-decorating for various holidays has gone way over the top. My neighborhood is festooned with that gauzy fake cobweb stuff, and plastic skeletons, and those accursed motor-driven inflatable blowup pumpkins that make we wish I had a nail every time I walk past one.

I give props to one household that put up a giant rope spiderweb one year, then decided to keep it up and add new accessories for other holidays. The stuffed bunnies in the web around Easter were a bit much, though.
