Halloween is by far one of the most over hyped times of the year. Now don’t get me wrong, Halloween when you’re a kid/in college is the shit. Just a fire holiday with a bunch of candy, dressing up in your local thrift stores finest, drinking, etc. However, it is so overhyped it’s not even funny. Every year: “WHAT ARE YOU GONNA BE, WHERE ARE YOU GOING” Blah blah blah, same shit every time. Everyone gets so excited just to be disappointed by a semi average night at best.
Here’s the good that can actually come out of Halloween:
Halloween Oreos, girls wearing sexy anything costumes, candy for days, creative/offensive coustumes, spooky shit, excuse to eat candy at your desk, and of course, Nov 1 = discount halloween candy.
And of course, more of the bad:
Fat chicks rocking those same sexy anything costumes, obnoxious high school/middle school kids, the “threat of gang initiations,” everyone wearing the same thing, diabetes, being the guy who doesnt dress up, and the guy who is 30+ single and still raging for it.
Another thing about this time of the year (and I already know I’m going to get so much shit for this but it’s happening): PUMPKIN CARVING.
Pumpkin carving is by far the most overrated part of Halloween. Everyone gets so into every year. Spend way too long at the pumpkin patch, bust out their little tool kits, and get to work. Here are my issues: it’s way too much work, they last for a solid 2 days before they rot, and they smell like shit. The only reason I’d even want to be around that nonsense is if pumpkin seed will be made. That’s it. Go ahead, throw a candle in it (do people still even do that anymore?), throw it outside your door, and watch it rot/be eaten/smashed. Pumpkin carving 101: don’t carve a pumpkin. Let it sit there. Thank me later.
