A set of traveling skeletons decide to pack their bags and go on an adventure from Mississippi to Tennessee and now Kentucky.  Their story will really tickle your funny bone.

WHERE DID THE IDEA OF SKELETONS FOR HALLOWEEN ORIGINATE?

For as long as I can remember skeletons have been a staple Halloween decoration for your yard, parties, and even costumes.  But have skeletons always been a part of this dark but fascinating holiday?

According to Halloweenfandom.com;

Skeletons are even more strongly associated with the Mexican holiday El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), which takes place on November 1. During that holiday, not only can many decorations in the shape of skeletons be seen, but candy and other foods which look like skeletons are eaten as well.

TRAVELING SKELETONS MAKE THEIR WAY TO 3 DIFFERENT STATES

The Sanders family lives right here in Daviess County, Kentucky.  They decided to join in on a little Halloween fun this year and invited some traveling skeletons to make themselves at home in their front yard for the season.

Here's the story of their travel according to Deanna;

We started Bones on the Roam the first part of September this year. We change them randomly with no set schedule. The skeletons started in Mississippi, traveled to Tennessee, and them made the final trip to us. Our neighbors have roamed them a few times to our surprise!! Facebook has gotten a kick out of our episodes for sure. Our dogs aren't bothered with them and could care less. It's amazing that some plastic, a few screws, and some string are bringing people so much joy! We text and share on Facebook...even made a few new Facebook friends out of it.

 

MEET THE BONES ON THE ROAM SKELETON CREW

The family changes the skeletons randomly and each time they change them they call it an "Episode" we'll start with episodes 1 and 2 and go from there.

I think this one should be called Wreaking Havoc;
