Discussed this a while back, but have been thinking about it of late.
Who was the first person who decided to embellish their decorations to be more than just seasonal décor?  And what exactly makes a Haunt?

An old porch with corn and garland and pumpkins = Décor
The same porch with a real human skull on a small table next to a flickering candle = Haunt?

Who was that person who had the first thought of making a grave marker or tombstone and jammed it into their front lawn?

When did decorations spill out from the house onto the front porch and the lawn?
