I have to admit, I'm sad that October is over. Ok, I'm sad that Halloween is over. Halloween, for me, is the main reason I am ok with it getting darker, earlier. Throw in some foggy weather and I am so happy, I could probably wee.
The problem with Halloween being over is that first we have Bonfire night, (which, let's face it, is like over-rated sex. All that build up, a bit of heat, then just a couple of flashes, a couple of bangs and you are left thinking, "Was that it?") and then that is it until Christmas.
After getting the chance to dress up in October, isn't it unfair that we then get nothing until the end of December?
I would like to suggest we throw in another opportunity, perhaps at the beginning of December, to dress up again. Wear the costume we didn't have the balls to wear for Halloween, or wear the costume that didn't ARRIVE in time for Halloween, forcing you to raid the back of your wardrobe for alternatives.
The beginning of December is usually filled with the haunted eyes of gift givers, clutching their red cups around shopping centres as they buy any old crap to fill the quota they have, or the haunted eyes of a parent searching for the must-have toy that their darling crotchfruit has requested Santa bring them, knowing that it has sold out in shops, but that's ok, because it is SANTA bringing it.
Now imagine the aforementioned shopping going on, while dressed as a bunny, or a skeleton, or a bunny skeleton.
Doesn't that sound like fun. In fact, I think it sounds SO MUCH FUN that we should actually make this an adult only celebration.
Trick or treating will consist of knocking on someone's front door with an empty glass, and they either fill it with wine or juice. The sweets can stay, I like them. House decorations consist of the October decorations that you didn't take down, and Christmas decorations you have just put up.
WE SHALL CALL THIS HOLIDAY, HALLOWEENMAS.
So if I tap on your door between now and Christmas, especially with shopping bags in my hand, keep that wine cold,
Trick or treat, people. TRICK OR TREAT.
Who will be celebrating HALLOWEENMAS with meeeeeeeeeeee?
Let me know.
