Before you set out on a mission to browse the attic for the same Halloween decoration props you reuse every year and pretend they're still as good as in 2015, let me tell you something. The world has changed. Things got a whole lot more scary this year. And from what we’ve seen happening in 2020 so far, the Jack-o'-lantern ain’t gonna do much in the spooky department.
That’s why people are taking Halloween decorating to a whole new level. Remember the iconic “this is fine” meme from KC Green’s 2013 webcomic “On Fire” that has been surfing all over the internet lately? Apparently, someone just turned their house into the meme for Halloween. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Below, we compiled some of the most relevant, painfully funny, and plain damn spooky Halloween decoration ideas from creative people nailing the haunted night. I mean, this year has been like one big Halloween night, so we had a lot of time to master the bad and the ugly.

To find out more about Halloween decor trends this year, Bored Panda reached out to Miranda Enzor, a Halloween lover and writer who runs the blog “Spooky Little Halloween.”
Miranda said that this year, like every year, current events are a popular choice for Halloween decor. The coronavirus becoming one of the key themes shouldn’t come as a surprise. “People see it as a way to weave a bit of commentary or humor into an otherwise difficult situation,” Miranda explained.

Among other Halloween decor trends, recycling and reusing the materials you already have is always a big one. Some people are even happy to mix up Christmas and Halloween decorations. “The small ceramic tree that was so popular in 2019 and returned in 2020 is a perfect example. I think Halloween lovers enjoy the chance to Halloweenify decor from other holidays and make it their own.”
Miranda said that the essence of Halloween decorations is about combining spooky and silly. “Depending on how you celebrate it, Halloween can be a lighthearted, fun, and even silly holiday. I like seeing people have fun with their decor in this way,” the writer concluded.
