THIS is one family who are getting into the spirit for Halloween.

Gannon and Kate Willis, 46, spend two days decorating their entire home, both inside and out for the spooky festival.

The couple – who have six kids between them – even have to keep the decorations in storage when they are not in use as they have so many.

Medical sales rep Gannon, 45, said the family take neighbours on a full tour of the home if they are brave enough.

And the family, who live in Tennessee, certainly go all out when it comes to their annual Halloween decorations.

But they also go the whole hog at Christmas time too.

Gannon said: “We got married nine years ago and we together we have six children between us.

“We had always been into decorating the house. My mum did it every year and my brothers do it too.

“We like to keep the tradition going and we have accumulated all the decorations over a number of years.

“I hope our kids will carry it on too.

“My wife is in charge of inside decorations and I do the outside.

“We get a lot of stuff at garage sales and when Halloween is over we go to the stores and buy decorations the sales for next year.

“We do it all again for Christmas. We put Halloween decorations up on October 1. Then Christmas decorations go up after Thanksgiving.

“Some of the local kids are a bit scared. But we also give tours of the home. We have a lot of foot traffic through the house.

“When all the decorations come down the house looks a bit plain.”
