Update 10/15/12:  Congratulations to this month’s winner, Donna, who says she likes to make her Halloween decorations “as scary as skeletons, but my 4-year-old twins have always been around those at Halloween time so they don’t see them as scary.” Congratulations, Donna! Check back next month for another great freebie.

There are two types of Halloween folk: The ones who deck their yard out in fake blood, life-sized zombies and motion-activated vampires and the ones who stick to jolly pumpkins and mildly creepy ghosts.

Since I can’t watch a horror movie without developing a new irrational fear, you can probably guess which camp I fall into. But whether you go for the blood and guts or would rather keep it PG, you’ll love this month’s giveaway: a collection of outdoor Halloween decorations from Grandin Road.

Halloween Reversible Pumpkin - Grandin Road
First on the giveaway list: This creepy animated pumpkin. Sure, it looks innocent enough, but flip on the switch and it turns “evil” — complete with a diabolical laugh — when unsuspecting folks walk by.

Halloween Ghost From Grandin Road
With your pumpkin decorations taken care of,  we’re also throwing in another Halloween essential: a gauzy ghost.  Lights inside this life-sized model add ambiance to your yard at night.

Halloween Skeleton

And finally, you can’t have a Halloween party without a resident skeleton. Hang him from the ceiling, prop him up in a chair or send him outside to greet the neighbors.
