This week’s topic: Halloween
I’ve always loved Halloween. I love horror and scary things! Growing up, it was always tradition to go out trick-or-treating with my parents. There was always a big event at my campground where everyone sat on the tables with candy and the kids would go through the tables. It was awesome!
I really, really miss trick-or-treating. I loved it so much that I went until I was 19 years old! Yep, I was that kid. And I was not ashamed haha. I figured it was time to give it up when multiple people were commenting about my age and saying, “Aren’t you a little old for this?” I think it sucks that it’s only for kids. There needs to be an adult trick-or-treat!!
The only complaint I have is that if you’re not a size 5 you can’t fit into any decent costumes. And it kind of annoys me that 98% of the Halloween costumes for women are skanky. When did it become about being slutty instead of scary? (Actually, Sydney @ Utterly Bookish made a post about this topic recently.) If you want a real costume (um, not a “sexy nurse”) you pretty much have to make your own. Boo.
As an adult, Halloween has kind of lost its charm. I still celebrate with horror movies and books, but I don’t do anything else. We don’t decorate. We don’t pass out candy. We don’t dress up. It just seems like a lot of effort (and money) anymore =/ I’ve thought about doing a costume party for adults the past few years, but just haven’t found the motivation to do it.
