Overflowing pumpkins

The fall/Halloween decorations already up in our neighborhood are amazing!

I liked these 'overflowing pumpkins'. Only on the photo I noticed the strange formula above the door next to the house number. The things you see only after you take photos are incredible!
Great Halloween decorations framing the door (not including the formula. Ha!)

Lovely decorations. We don't go much for Halloween in Australia so don't tend to see decorations like this outside the houses.

I thought there was a fire either side of the door when I first saw this.

The strange formula is called Chalking the door and its a catholic tradition to bless the home. The first two and last two digits are the year, the C,M,B stand for the names of the three Magi - Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar and the + represents the cross. The message also abbreviates the Latin phrase Christus Mansionem Benedicat meaning "May Christ Bless the House"
