ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — Richard and Theresa Fuss of Elmwood Park have always been close.

For starters, they were born 11 months apart. They've long done almost everything together.

Halloween was never an exception.

The Fuss siblings say that decorating their Bank Street home has brought them even closer.

"We're very close, me and my brother," Theresa told Daily Voice. "And this means so much to us."

Theresa purchased the Bank Street house five years ago. She, her brother and her parents all moved in from Paramus, bringing the Halloween tradition with them.

"My brother’s been doing it for years," she said. "But we just kept adding on and adding on."

They begin Sept. 1, and continue working through October. It all comes together the weekend before Halloween, when they put up a  tent and throw a party for friends and neighbors.
