It’s the end of October!!!! This means that Halloween is near; an annual holiday that brings out the worst in everyone and gets your blood boiling. Doesn’t that sound exciting?
Halloween is also referred to as All Hallow’s Eve and is a yearly celebration that takes place on October 31st. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. This happens to be one of my favorite holidays! The houses in various neighborhoods are covered in scary decor including ghost lights, carved jacolaterns, witch brooms, anputated body parts, and more! Zombies, Princesses, Doctors, and Maids walk the streets asking for free hand fulls of candy. Doorbells are rung, setting off boobie traps that make spiders drop from the ceiling and skeletons pop out of the ground. Haunted houses covered in false blood and creepy music plays as people enter and nearly piss their pants from being spooked. EVERYONE has to love this time of the year. The excitement is too good to miss!
Have you decided on what your costume will be this year? I asked my boyfriend if I could be a leftover wrapped in aluminum foil while he dresses as the microwave… yeah. It’s not going to happen. Haha. I’ll figure out what I’m going to be sooner or later! With plenty of options to choose from, I’m sure the local Halloween store will have something to my liking. Be sure to check out the stores in your area as well. Many people have been wanting to dress as super heros this year! Hop on the bandwagon, though that’s not as scary as Halloween should be, but who am I to judge your decision! I’m all for seeing guts, brains, and gory! If you can make me scream and having me running for cover, you’ve accomplished your annual Halloween duty. Even if I’m dressed as something that isn’t scary, I love walking into scare traps.
Save the trick or treating for ages 16 and under. The older you get, the more you start to realize that walking door to door asking for candy isn’t as fun as it used to be. Welcome to adulthood. We enjoy in this day in age playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. We attend Halloween parties and dance the night away in full costume or We make a trip to the scariest haunted house in the city with a massive group of friends. Either way, Halloween is enhanced to something you never would have imagined as a younger child. It’s bigger, better, and scarier than it used to be!
Let the countdown begin: One week from today we will all be dressed in our costumes and ready to take on a fun filled night. Be responsible. Whether you get stuck taking your younger siblings trick or treating or you find a party to crash, make sure your actions are smart.
