As with so many things we humans celebrate, I’ve frankly never understood our fascination with Halloween. First of all, sending our kids door to door to issue the implied threat behind the whole trick or treat thing has never seemed like good parenting to me. And considering how scary people already are, expanding that lunacy to include encouraging adults to behave in an even more scary manner than usual strikes me as something akin to insanity on an industrial-scale!
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. After all, my skills at interpreting the motivations of my fellow man aren’t exactly world renowned. Hell, for all I know, they may find a celebration of fear to be somehow “cathartic”… 🙄
Happy Halloween Everyone!
I want ice water.
