People trick-or-treat in a Brooklyn neighborhood on Halloween night on October 31, 2015 in New York City. Throughout the country children and adults are dressing-up in costumes to both scare and entertain as they make their way through neighborhoods collecting candy treats.

With Halloween about two weeks away, you’re probably noticing a lot of homes putting up spooky decorations to get into the holiday spirit. But it seems some states like to get their spook on more than others.
