I know some people still have classic dress-ups, but it seems like Halloween has turned into vampires and dead brides and icky stuff. Which is why on a scale of 1-10 of liking Halloween … I’m at a 1. Sorry kids. It’s true.
Let’s look at fantastic Holidays:
Christmas… celebrating Christ’s birth
Easter… celebrating the Resurrection & remembering Christ’s life
Thanksgiving… family and gratitude
Independence Day… celebrating freedom
uhhh… Halloween… trick-or-treat (give me candy) … creepy decorations all over the neighborhood.
I’m the grinch of Halloween. I’ll take the cute part of Halloween like littles dressed up sweetly. But I’d skip the rest.
I just can’t stand paying money on a costume that is dorky or cheaply made that will be worn once. I could sew?! sigh…
I was aiming for the Book of Mormon Hero theme but nobody liked that one. Plus, I’d have to sew. Ummm… not gunna happen.
