And they did the decoration. Outside their charming farm-style home, there are chains and hooks hanging from the trees, scattered “body parts”, bloody handprints on the windows, and circles revolving around ghost “children” dancing around a fake fire. ۔ . Oh, and there’s a “body” wrapped in a trash can hanging upside down from a tree. “We’ve got a wig to make it more realistic,” Amy added.
