Halloween has certainly lost its magic for me this year. Nobody decorates anymore, there’s hardly any trick-or-treaters in neighborhoods that I distinctly remember being LOADED with kids having a good time. Nobody decorates their houses anymore, and (most) parties are all about getting drunk and gyrating against one another.
Nobody tells ghost stories, has bonfires, goes in large groups to haunted houses, or any of that good old stuff anymore. Is this what we’ve become? A bunch of lame-o’s?
I give props to Jay & Molly for their party last weekend- it was a blast, and quite Halloween-y. And those of you who dressed up and/or took your little ones trick-or-treating, bravo! But where is the fun anymore? Where is the spirit? Halloween means more to me than Christmas time, guys. It IS my Christmas time.
Religious celebration (Samhain) aside, the fun of Halloween is all but gone. And it makes me immensely sad.
