In his first year living at Government House in downtown Annapolis, Gov. Martin O'Malley took the sedate route in Halloween decorating: Two ghosts and a scarecrow. Hay bales. Cornstalks. A pair of leaf wreaths. Some mums.

Under O'Malley's predecessor in the mansion, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., the capital became an inflatable nation. A giant blow-up pumpkin, an air-filled Dracula, tombstones, giant eyeballs and loads of other holiday trimmings blanketed Maryland's front lawn.


As the Christmas season, with its own decorating extravaganza, marches ever closer, what kind of decorations do you prefer outside the governor's mansion?
