So here are a few reasons why I don’t really “do” Halloween.
- I don’t understand why women have to sexify potential costume choices. As they say in Mean Girls, “In Girl World, Halloween is the one time of year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”
- I only like to wear a costume if a theme party is involved and everyone I’m with is highly committed to said theme.
- I don’t have children.
- We don’t get trick or treaters.
- I get scared VERY easily.
That being said, I like candy and Fall things andIt’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, so my celebration of Halloween tonight included all three! The hubs and I ate the last of our cider donuts from Didier Farms and washed them down with apple cider (what else) while watching that 1966 Charlie Brown classic. (“There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and The Great Pumpkin.”)
