I noticed the skeletons moving around a few days into October and started to snap photos of them to compare all of them because I thought it was so creative. The neighborhood we live in is a new neighborhood so everyone who lives there has just moved in within the last few months, a lot of the houses are still being built. They said they have been doing it for years though!

I was very surprised to see the tweet I did of their movements blow up in the way it did. I only had about 170 friends on Twitter originally.

My neighbors’ names are Bob and Bill and when I went over to talk to them about the tweet last night and to show them that it went viral, they had already seen it and were caught up on it and were so excited They knew exactly who I was. They just put out the skeletons to make other people happy. They just want people to stop and see something joyful in your day.”
