I think Halloween is the best holiday for figuring out if someone is likeable or not. This may be controversial, but it’s the way that I feel, so for all of you Halloween haters out there, these words are not going to please those eyes of yours.
Halloween is the time of year for dressing up however you want. You can become a different person, a different species, something that only exists in your imagination – WHATEVER YOU WANT! To some people, this is a daunting task, something to drag your feet through with minimal enthusiasm. To others, this is one of the most exciting times of the year. This is the group I identify with. Halloween costumes are a discussion topic all throughout the year, and it’s a conversation that never gets tiresome.
The reason I think a person’s attitude about Halloween is so telling is because this is a time to get creative, and to get excited about something that is out of the norm. When I see someone with an amazing costume on I immediately like them more. Maybe we have never met, maybe we’ve known each other for years, but if you’ve got a great costume on that you put some thought and care into, you have earned some respect from me.
On the other hand, if you don’t like trying on Halloween, if you wear normal clothes and try to pass it off as dressing as your friend I feel a wave of disappointment. This was your chance to get outside of the box! Why are you squandering this chance anti Halloween people??
In any case, Halloween comes around once a year, so there is always a chance to break out of your shell and be the Halloween champion of my dreams. Get to thinking now and don’t forget to write down all of your great ideas in a little notebook that you keep on the living room coffee table. Everyone has one of those right?
