Parties, costumes all part of Halloween fun

Halloween is not just for the creeps and the killers but for anyone willing to let loose.

This holiday seems to get bad reviews because it supposedly instills fear into people.

Halloween is a day where people can enjoy being a little frightened and get the chance to be someone else. Dressing as a character is a part of Halloween traditions. Yes, people can go a little overboard by acting as they dress, but it is all in the spirit. If someone wants to dress up as a slutty pirate, cop or witch, let her. Halloween should be a day of no judgment.

Along with dressing up come things like parties. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good party? Socializing with friends, playing games and gorging on candy is something I wish I could do every day. The holiday brings a lot of parties throughout the month of October, so enjoy the fact you have friends willing to continuously invite you to events like that.

My reason behind loving Halloween is the scare factor. Things that are terrifying bring me more joy than is probably sane. Not liking scary things is no excuse for disliking Halloween, though. It gives people the chance to bring the fun out in terror. We dress up each year as the monsters we are afraid of merely for play and enjoyment.

People underestimate the power of a holiday in a person’s life. Halloween has a soft spot in my heart because I have loved it since my very first time trick-or-treating with my family. Halloween has always been a favorite holiday of mine because of the memories.

If you do not feel the same about Halloween as I do, that is fine. However, do not ruin the things that bring so much joy to others around you. If you are going to be a party pooper, just don’t join the party.
