Not as many people decorate their homes for Halloween as do for Christmas, but one of the Hilliard homes that does is located on the corner of Luxair Drive and Scioto Darby Road.

Not as many people decorate their homes for Halloween as do for Christmas, but one of the Hilliard homes that does is located on the corner of Luxair Drive and Scioto Darby Road.

There are skeletons and ghosts hanging from the trees; orange lights on the bushes; tombstones in the yard; spiders and bats dangling in front of the house; a sign that says "Psycho Parkway;" and lots of cobwebs. Inside the house, there's more: spiders and webs; skulls, a hand; and jack-o-lanterns.

For the past three years, Robert Domer II and his wife Dionna have made their Hilliard home a Halloween haven.

"This is her favorite time of year," Robert said of his wife. "I'm tickled to death it's not Christmas, because I really don't like getting on ladders and putting up lights in the middle of winter. This is easy compared to that."

"I didn't put up as much as I did last year," Dionna said of her Halloween-themed living room. "Halloween's the only (holiday) I go all out on."

A fan of horror movies from an early age, Dionna said she likes being able to decorate their residence with all things Halloween.

"I'm sure if I had my way, I probably would keep this up year-round."

Dionna said she will wear a costume when she takes their daughter Caitlyn, 10, out trick-or-treating tonight, because "the kid comes out of me too at Halloween."

Caitlyn said she likes all her parents' Halloween decorations.

Robert said he'll be passing out candy tonight while wearing one of his several Halloween outfits.

"At least I don't jump out of the bushes at them, but I sit in that chair going, 'ooh!' "I really enjoy it, especially watching the kids and adults."

The Domers estimated they spend 8-10 hours putting up the decorations since early October, doing a little at a time. Dionna does the interior, puts the lights on the bushes and applies the webbing fabric (which Robert calls "a royal pain to work with"). Robert puts up the bigger decorations, and uses a 20-foot ladder to hang the skeletons and ghosts from the trees.

"We just keep adding every year," Robert said. "I don't want to go hog wild one year just getting everything. This year we added the little witch with the cauldron and windsocks."

"If we could afford it, we'd have tons more than what we have," Dionna said.

Robert is already thinking about next year's ghoulish display.

"I've still got a ton of orange lights. I'm going to run an extra cord and put orange lights all up and down that tree. That'll brighten up the skeletons a little bit more."
