So tomorrow is Halloween.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve not been a fan of this “holiday.”
I don’t know if it’s because I’m not into dressing up or if I find it to be some silly holiday. Even as a kid I was never really into it. Sure, I went out and trick-or-treated, but I don’t ever recall staying out too late doing it. I just didn’t have a lot of fun with it.
I had friends who did all the prank stuff — you know, the eggs, shaving cream etc. I never got into it.
When I was still employed, I always volunteered to be the one to work Halloween because others had kids etc. Or, others just liked the night.
For those who like it, I get it. It’s a way to go out, dress up, act silly and all that.
But I just don’t get into it.
Halloween parties don’t interest me. I hate going out to bars and such the weekend of Halloween.
Kids dressing up and going out getting candy is understandable and must be quite enjoyable for the parents as well. But this so-called holiday isn’t just a kids one. Adults dress up and have their parties. Heck, in recent years, I’ve seen college kids — yes college kids — go out and trick-or-treat.
That’s the type of stuff that is annoying. If you are 18, 19 or 20 — or college age — you shouldn’t be going out, knocking on doors and trick-or-treating.
And if you are, you should be told where to go by the person at the house.
That’s neither here nor there, however.
It’s the overall part of this “holiday.” Like two or three others, it just seems to be an excuse for people to either go out boozing or for companies to make boatloads of money by promoting it. And I guess that just is one of those things that irks me.
I’ve seen a bunch of photos on Facebook already, so I’m sure the two choices are working out well.
And I don’t getting all done up in costumes, so that’s probably another reason I don’t like Halloween.
For those who enjoy Halloween, have fun (unless your parties have already happened, in which case I hope you had fun). And for those of you with little ones, have fun tomorrow trick-or-treating. Be safe and make sure you take photos as these are the times I’m sure you’ll look back on and chuckle one day!
