It’s that time of year again. All hallows eve. A reason to dress up in some horrific costume and run wild on the streets.
Now I would normally partake in all the shenangins, as would the girls, however, this year it’s different.
This year it has been well and truly ruined.
So I give you, my top three reasons we are not taking part in Halloween.
NUMBER 1: General trust amongst other human beans. It’s true. A year of heartache across the world, with people killing each other for no reason at all but to make a statement. The trust has all melted away leaving people not even passing out a smiley hello or thank you.
We literally just keep to ourselves, ignoring what the rest of the world is doing in hopes we can lead a normal, stranger free life.
It’s sad really when you think about it. Communities are few and far between and even then people are second guessing and keeping their guards well and truly up.
NUMBER 2: The kids go to a C of E school. So Halloween isn’t something they partake in, so the girls haven’t really been caught up in any of the hype. It has been more about harvest and giving back to others.
Something they have both done really well.
So it’s not really been on the forefront of their minds meaning I haven’t had to hear about it every few minutes.
NUMBER 3: Probably the biggest reason we won’t be taking part is the killer clowns. Now this is ridiculous. My children shouldn’t have to be sat down to be warned about trusting anyone dressed as a clown.
It’s a conversation I never imagined myself having!
It’s ridiculous and plain frightening. Why are people trying to spoil these occasions with violence?
What does that say to our children? Or even mankind as a whole?!
I can’t imagine the devastation for the clown community. Their livelihoods pulled from beneath them because someone decided now would be a good time to whack on a clown suit and murder people?!
Who thinks like that?!
Now dressing up has become feared. No longer can the kids dress up and go trick or treating. I know I certainly don’t feel comfortable with it and I will not be opening my door on Halloween.
So there you have it. Any dressing up will be done at home, as usual, all year round.
Are you taking part this year?
We would love to know 🙂
