Homecoming may be the best week for kids when in high school, but recent activities have some parents very upset.

It has become a tradition at many schools to have turf battles between students, and that often involves kids putting toilet paper in some of their peers' yards.

While putting toilet paper in a yard for Homecoming week isn't so bad, there are some kids taking the Homecoming prank way too far.

I'll never forget seeing a toilet and a sofa in someone's yard one morning and that was when I was introduced to this yearly prank. Honestly, I thought the homeowner was moving, until I asked what was going on.

Fast forward a few years and here we are still talking about pranks for Homecoming week, and we're talking about the pranks going too far now.

Some recent photos on social media show a yard that is a complete mess. While most parents will tell you that they're fine with the toilet paper prank for Homecoming week, some tell us that they believe the kids in the area have gone too far.

As you'll see in the photos here, a yard was littered with old furniture, a bike, syrup, and even seafood. Yes, the kids, who were caught on camera, threw all of this in this couple's yard and now the homeowners are the ones left cleaning this up.

Let me note here that this is NOT the first report of such vandalism. We've seen a number of homes and vehicles damaged in recent years because of the Homecoming pranks and now parents have had enough.

We have even seen police departments announce on social media that if damage is done to one's property, the homeowner has the right to file charges against those who trespassed and damaged their property.

Often parents will ask those who pulled off the prank to come back to help clean up the mess they made, pending there aren't any legal issues from the property where the prank was made.

Check out what was left in one couple's yard this week in New Iberia.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
