I must confess...

I hate Halloween

There, I said it.
Shame me if you want, but I just can't make myself like it.

I hate scary movies (I can't even watch scary movie previews...instant channel change)

I hate how bad little kid's manners are when they come to your door for candy

I hate slutty girl costumes...slutty cop? slutty fireman? slutty pineapple? I mean, what?!
(True Story: I couldn't even find any pics of me in a costume on Facebook because I untagged them all! But I will admit to have been a slutty Little Miss Moffett and slutty Super Woman)

I don't want a faux eye ball floating in my cocktail or a scarecrow to jump out at me from some dark corner of what used to be a nice restaurant.

Halloween: I'm out.

But this? This I can get behind...
(mostly because if anyone ever kidnapped me and tossed me into a haunted house, this is what I would look like)

And, just so ya'll dont think that I'm the worst human ever, I will say that in our old neighborhood in South Carolina we sat outside in our driveway (Justin in full costume) to hand out candy to the one million kids that came to our house. Honestly, it's just too effing cold to do that in Maine so I will be kind and put a bowl of candy on the front porch. Based on what I witnessed over the last few years, that bowl will be empty after the first kid, but hey, it's better than nothing.

Happy Halloween Ya'll!

  1. haha! Oh my gosh that is totally me in a haunted house!! I hate scary movies too, but we do like giving out candy because the little kids are so darn cute and excited about it! Once the big kids start showing up, I'm out too!

  2. YES! I will cosign to everything you said above regarding Halloween! Glad I'm not the only one who feels this way! But at least now we can start looking forward to Thanksgiving! - M

  3. I feel the same way - about it ALL. I hate Halloween. It's hard when you have kids and have to fake-like it. :o)

  4. I'm with you there! I call myself the Grinch of Halloween. I agree on everything you said. I also live in Florida and I've never been and never will go to Halloween Horror Nights or Howl-O-Scream. I didn't even want to pass out candy this year, but my husband made me. Bring on November!

  5. YES - love reading about others who share my feelings toward Halloween! I posted something similar yesterday (sheltieinthecity.blogspot.com). Enjoy staying warm indoors and avoiding the kiddos!

  6. I agree sis...I hate Halloween. I like the candy, but hate having so many people coming up to my front door. We'll put the bowl out and both take the boys around until they get bored (maybe 10 houses).

  7. I am just like you! On halloween I would much rather start listening to Christmas music and decorating for thanksgiving :-)

  8. I'm with you on the scary movie thing. HATE. On to Thanksgiving!

  9. I'm not the biggest halloween fan either, mostly because of the scary movies, slutty costumes, and the pressure to be creative. Yikes. However, I do love little children in costumes. BUT I did want to say that last night, the little MO children that came to our house were super polite. I had to tell them to take more than one piece of candy so we didn't end up with a bowl of it left! I was super proud of them. :)
