A festive Northern Kentucky home

There's no better way to be utilizing your socially distanced free time than by horrifying (or harvest-ifying) your home in the spirit of the season. 

And it seems people are taking full advantage of these "unprecedented times," as yards and porches across the Greater Cincinnati area have been transformed with Halloween decor.

In fact, the National Retail Federation has found that while overall consumer spending may dip to $8.05 billion this Halloween — down from $8.78 billion last year — due to COVID, those who are celebrating are planning to spend more, going big while staying at home. A typical consumer engaging in Halloween festivities is slated to spend $92.12 on average compared to $86.27 last year.

So if you're going all out in celebration of this hellish, spooky-ass year, we want to see it. Share a photo (preferably landscape/horizontal orientation) to [email protected] with your first and last name and neighborhood (Northside, Covington, Oakley, etc.) and we will choose our favorites to share with our readers on Halloween weekend.
