Halloween – Blogtober #16

Wanna know what I plan on being for Halloween? Sleeping Beauty ! Tucked up in bed, wearing my PJs, not giving a single fuck. Zero fucks given over here ya’ll.
I’m gonna be totally honest and admit I just don’t get the Halloween hype. #sorrynotsorry. Maybe it’s because I’ve never been a fan of the horror genre, or maybe I’m just slow to the trend and I’ll eventually catch up to it all. Saying that though, the nightmare before Christmas is one of my favourite films soooooo, make of that what you will. Maybe it’s just sheer laziness that I’m not into it.
Halloween has only really taken off over here in the last couple of years. I went trick or treating in my younger years, but as I get older the idea of it all seems kinda messed up. I mean, we tell kids all year round not to talk to or accept things from strangers, but one night of the year we’re all fuck it, go knock on strangers doors and ask for sweets / candy.

I’m 100% over it !! Can we just skip to bonfire night and Christmas please?? 

Admitidly I do love dressing up, and being the one handing out the sweets is more my thing, but still… All year round I jump at unexpected knocks on the door and to be happy about it one day a year seems kinda messed up.

I realise I sound a total spoil sport. It’s just not for me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want others to enjoy it. Young kids in fancy dress… eeek the cuteness of it all. Yeah one day when I have my own children I just know I’m gonna have a change of heart on this kinda stuff.

This year though? Don’t ask me what I’m dressing up as or what my plans are. I just don’t care.

A short post? Yes but one I’ve wanted to write for like, the last week.

  1. I’ve never really understood the Halloween hype either until this year when Is celebrated it differently, we’ve been pumpkin picking, we took a weekend away at Fear Fest-Evil and tonight we’re going to my partners Halloween party. We’re also putting on a horror night next week. I think it all depends on how you organise yourself and what you plan for Halloween, this year I’m having a blast.
