Gruesome Halloween Displays in Stores

Oh it's that time of year! Halloween can be fun. It isn't my favorite holiday, but I do love seeing the small children and babies all dressed up. I enjoy giving out candy and I always comment on the trick-or-treater's costumes. Many folks enjoy decorating their homes and yards for the season too, and so much of it is very creative! I have no problem with that at all. Even the scary stuff. To each their own. I do have a problem with stores like Walmart, grocery stores, and other businesses having graphic, bloody, realistic displays, right near the entrance. Two examples: A few years ago, the Walmart near me had a very tall (about 7 feet) headless, bloody man, standing right inside the front door. He was holding his own head in his hands. The customers were forced to see it! It certainly could scare children or anyone else. Inappropriate in my opinion! They could've had a Halloween display that was friendlier to all types of customers. Yesterday, I went to a DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Thrift Store. They had something horrifying and bloody right inside their front door too. Yuck! I just think people should have a choice to see stuff like that, or not! And ESPECIALLY to be able to protect the little ones from being frightened. Maybe businesses could have a "scary" Halloween section, with a big sign, so shoppers could easily find those items or avoid that area of the store. What do you think?
