I thought it would be worthwhile to do a quick blog post about Halloween this year. Because frankly, I had A BLAST.
As I said in my previous post, Halloween is my favorite holiday.
And this year was especially fun because of two things: 1) We had great friends visiting and 2) We were at the right place at the right time.
If you know me, then you know how much I love getting spooked!
I love reading ghost stories. I’m always on the lookout for haunted places. And I’m a self-professed scary movie cinephile. So it’s no wonder that halloween is my most favorite holiday!
Call me a grump, but I always want halloween to be scary.
I don’t like how halloween has become this free-for-all excuse to party and get drunk. Like every other holiday. And I don’t like how just about anything can pass for a costume these days.
What happened to the spirit of Halloween?
Lately, I’ve been seeing a trend in the makeup industry that reflects a shift in social and cultural norms. And it’s a herald of things that are yet to come.
But first. Before I get into that, you should really watch this video.
No, really. Don’t read ahead until you’ve watched it!!
