The 20 Types Of Houses To Avoid On Halloween

There are some houses that are just too creepy to visit on Halloween. Maybe they’re run down or a mysterious family used to live there, but either way, there’s no candy that would be worth knocking on the front door – not even a full-size Snickers bar.

Just in case you don’t know what you’re looking for, here are 20 types of houses you should avoid on Halloween. Steer clear of these and have fun trick-or-treating!

1. Houses that appear to be wearing witch hats.
