While I appreciate the folks who have asked if they can donate/PayPal to cover the costs of the lights and (wind powered!) electricity, I've never asked for donations and don't plan to change that. While it is a bit of work to put up all the Halloween stuff, I do it anyway for the neighborhood kids and the web site is just my way of saying "Happy Halloween" to folks around the world. If you feel compelled to make some sort of donation, my kids have celiac disease so make a donation toward medical research - tell 'em Komar.Org sent 'ya! ;-)

BTW, for the actual night of Halloween, I have "HULK SMASH" audio playing really loud. So when the kids come by, I ask the smallest (and scaredest one) kid to tell the Hulk to be "Shut Up". It requires a little prodding, but eventually they will say "Be Quiet Hulk" ... and I, of course, hit the OFF button on my wireless X10 remote in my pocket and 'lo and behold, the Hulks is quiet - the speakers power is toggled off. Always get a great response as that kid feels pretty good after that! ;-)

2014 Halloween Decorations Webcam Updates

2014_09_25: As noted at the top of the page, the Controllable Halloween Decorations for Celiac Disease raises awareness and encourages people who enjoy the light show to donate to the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Read more here and consider adding to the over $80,000 raised so far. For reference, here is the halloween 2013 webcam updates.

2014_09_28: Spooky comments now enabled on the Halloween Blog.

2014_10_05: Once again, my neighbor got their Halloween Decorations up before me. But it's kinda like the race between the turtle and the rabbit ... slow-n-steady "wins" the race! ;-)

2014_10_10: Most everything is pulled out of the crawl space and am repairing some leaks in the Hulk's. I have some family stuff this upcoming weekend, so I'm going to be a bit behind in getting everything out there and online.

2014_10_14: I did the initial setup on the front lawn ... hope to do the haunted office tomorrow. Still need to do some light testing and dust off the webcams and X10 control system. Hoping to go online by the end of the week.

2014_10_16: While I still have a lot more stuff to put out, I turned everything on tonight and went live on the Internet - the webcams and X10 controllers are all working well.

2014_10_21: Pretty much everything has been deployed and hooked up ... although there's always a little bit of "fine tuning" to make the display look just perfect - D'OH! ;-)

2014_10_29: The weather forecast for Halloween is sunny and 60°F ... so should see quite a few trick-or-treaters. I have a buncha candy for the little kids and quite a few liquid refreshments for the "big" kids - hopefully this will be enough! ;-)

2014_10_31: Another crazy-fun Halloween night! Once again, close to 200 trick-or-treaters came by as the weather was mild. They almost cleaned me out of candy (I'm very generous, especially early on) and I also passed out shots of Chocolate EggNog and Pumpkin Liquor (plus beer and wine) to the "big" kids. Check out all the action on the Halloween Blog ... Jerry Garcia costume was the best! ;-)

2014_11_04: I've put away the Halloween stuff and shut down the Halloween Blog ... so it's a wrap for 2014 ... and time to get ready for Christmas! ;-)

2014_12_04: I announce that 2014 will be the last year for the Controllable Halloween Decorations and Controllable Christmas Lights. It's been a fun run providing smiles and joy to millions of Internet surfers, but Alek "Griswold" is hanging up his Santa Hat! ;-)
