Halloween Stinks

I hate Halloween. I despise adults who get excited about "what they are going to wear" for the day. Halloween is for little kids who go trick or treating for candy. It's not a day for grown men to act out their transvestite fantasies in public or couples who don their B&D gear for everyone to see. I think its a bizarre display of exhibitionism. Quite frankly, it's disturbing to me to see my 40 something year old neighbor in her daughters cheerleader outfit. Deep down I know she wishes she was that little kid again and perversely she is soooo enjoying the Halloween moment in front of us all. Yuck! Please people. Keep all your costumes locked up in your closets and just wear them for your spouses and loved ones who care for you. I hate to tell you this. You are annoying and you don't look as good as you think you do. Now get away from my door step or I'll have to get my peace-maker and blast your ass!

    Granted the very idea of Halloween has been watered down to the point of just blatant commercialism, it is still a night to allow yourself a bit of mischief and fun. It's not every day that you get to wear a costume and explore something "other". We all can't live in a box twenty four seven/ 365 and it is a cathartic release of the hectic stress filled days of our existence.

    Though I agree that Halloween is now an excuse for women to walk outside with very little clothing and men to wear a costume that shows their virility, or lack of it - it's still, mostly, harmless fun.
