There are Halloween devotees and there are Halloween haters. I am of the latter tribe. And while I will likely venture out this weekend like many other Halloween weekends, with a half-hearted endeavor at a costume, I merely want everyone to know this a sacrifice on my part.
Like many Halloween haters, the whole experience is largely to be social with friends rather than any actual enjoyment derived from the experience. And with that, here are 7 reasons set out above Halloween is actually insufferable 😛 TAGEND
Nothing quite like assuring the amount of endeavor many people put into costumes and Halloween-themed parties. I have seen people go across sleepless nights and spend a sizeable amount of money on their costumes. The period and monetary investment merely doesn’t seem worth the return. Let’s keep it real: This is the holiday of basics.
If you live in a warm place, good for you; you don’t have this problem. And if you live somewhere cold but you always induce the smart decision to always select a warm garb, even better! But opportunities are, you made the decision to wear something that was well , not remotely warm. And then you’re freezing in between Halloween parties. Is it really worth it?( Bring a coat .)
If I’m going to care about a superficial vacation, there better be some assures. Hate on Valentine’s day and New Year’s Eve all you want but at least there’s a good chance that if you’re single, you might satisfy someone to mingle( and know what they actually look like ). And if you’re in a relationship, you’re getting some chocolate or kiss because even though it doesn’t define your love, it’s just another day to remind you that chocolate and kisses are wonderful things.
As someone who has a birthday a few days before Halloween, I would just like to say that every year I have to accommodate the fact that Halloween is around my birthday. And you know what? That’s not cool. You know what else is never going to be cool? A Halloween-themed birthday party.
The older I get, the less inclined I feel to go to any place where there’ll be acrowd.The only legitimate exceptions are sports games and Janet Jackson. Halloween seems like a whole lot of things people would ordinarily dislike doing- is available on long lines, with a thousand of your closest friends, and struggling to breathe- all while mostly pretendingTHIS “re having fun”. At least when you’re in long lines and mob and are struggling to breathe for other reasons, you don’t have to pretend you’re having a good time.
Ah, yes. I would love to say my detest of Halloween is onlythe little aggravations. But actually, there is nothing like Halloween to remind me of how wholly culturally incompetent and casually racist society is. And while I would love to write an annual piece every yearexplaining why your Native American garb or Blackface make up is disrespectful, disgusting, bigoted, and racist, I simply hope that if you are reading such articles, you also have access to Google.

So after spending a night in a costume that you probably got sick of wearing by midnight, you’ll probably want to go home at some point inthe early hours of the morning. But not so fast Cinderella, it’s not going to be so easy to get out of here, is it? Because not only will taxis be nowhere to be seen, and will have sky-high prices. Hope you did in fact bring that coat and some sensible shoes. You’ll need’ em.
