I repeat: Halloween is stupid

I do very much like: the changing season, the earlier evenings, the sunsets, the light of the sun reflecting on rainclouds (praise God for rain!), tree leaves of gold and crimson, pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn across the spectrum, All Saints’ Day and “Discover a New Saint” homeschool assignments, the smell of fire, robust beers, apples and roasts, and the joys of looking forward to time with loved ones, giving thanks and welcoming the Savior.

But Halloween is stupid, and I reiterate and reaffirm what I said about it last year, with even more emphasis, hyperbole and arm-waving, as if fully set forth herein. Don’t even try to argue with me; just admit you like celebrating a dumb unholiday.


One thought on “I repeat: Halloween is stupid

  1. I used to enjoy it, but then I was 5 years old, dressed as an astronaut and I got free candy. Plus the parties at relatives’ houses. Now I just turn off my porch light on Halloween night. I enjoy the trappings of autumn as much as the next person, but I’m not in love with being frightened (although, I had a blast a few years ago at Universal Studios Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. That’s where I learned that I am freaked out by strobe lights. Go figure. I don’t like the supernatural “chills” because that stuff is far too real. It’s not a game, it’s not fantasy OR a joke, it’s real and I don’t enjoy it when people try to make it “fun” ’cause it’s not.

    Long story short (too late, I know), I’m with you.
