Sesame Street fans living in one Pennsylvania neighbourhood were in for a sweet treat this Halloween! Lisa Boll has been a huge fan of the children’s animated series for a long time and wanted to find a special way to commemorate its 50th anniversary this year. So, the York Township resident decided to go all out for Halloween and decorate her front door with a giant display of one of the show’s most beloved characters – Cookie Monster! Using vines, styrofoam and blue spray paint, Boll was able to transform her average front door into a massive Cookie Monster design, reaching from the roof of the house down to the ground, with the character’s open mouth as the pathway to her door. Meanwhile, two large circles of styrofoam were used to create the oversized puppet’s eyes and the chocolate chip cookie inside his mouth that he’s currently munching on. Boll said she didn’t expect the unique Halloween decoration to grab as much attention as it did. “It was surprising how many people get a big kick out of it,” Boll said that drivers frequently pull over to snap a photo with their kids in front of the extraordinary display.
