I actually don't like Halloween very much any more. It's become over-consumerized and grown-up oriented. I mean, we always did spend money on candy and costumes and cardboard decorations. But now every other house is lit up with purple and orange lights, and scarecrows and pumpkins and hay bales tumble down the porch steps, and people who work at banks and restaurants try to punch keys with werewolf hands or serve food while wearing long wigs and mermaid fins.
I guess I'm a Halloween grinch. How did that happen? I like candy corn, and I don't mind the trick-or-treaters - they're usually pretty cute. And I did have the best costume ever last year (here).
|The clothes are all old, had them for years. And yes, it was warm enough for sandals - until it rained.|
Here I'm playing around with a plastic costume fedora (seen in VOGOFF and in yesterday's Scavenger Hunt) to join Hat Attack! with the Style Crone.
How do you feel about Halloween - an orgy of sugar madness, or a socially acceptable excuse for playing dress-up?
(Those are not the only acceptable answers.)
