Happy Halloween! To me it’s the most wonderful time of year! The air gets colder (well for some), scary movies are everywhere, candy is on sale (hello chocolate!) and we get to dress as crazy as we want without judgment.
So let that broom fly high. Indulge. Trick. Treat. Hell, if you want, smell some feet. It’s Halloween, you get a pass.
As a child, I’ve always loved Halloween and it’s probably because as an extremely shy individual this was the one night I could go crazy without worry. On Halloween I could be anyone or anything and I relished in the moment. Whether a witch, princess, pirate or zombie, I had my pick. Why is Halloween just once a year?
I don’t want you to think that my love of Halloween is simply me indulging in an identity crisis because that’s not the case. I know who I am and being shy and reserved is part of that. I do however enjoy getting creative with my makeup and clothes and Halloween is the perfect time to really let loose.
This year plans did not work out (BOOOOO) and I have a smorgasbord of Halloween packed into a bag waiting for next year, but I will make the best of it and dress up a bit to hand out candy. Even if it’s just silly tights or a hat, I encourage you to get into the spirit. Even the most uptight person deserves a night of silly.
So go crazy! Be safe, yet ghoulishly stylish and remember NOT to OD on sugar.
