Yesterday was Halloween, the night where children don spooky costumes, and run around the neighborhood pounding on doors and shouting “Trick-or-Treat” in order to get themselves some sweet gobs of sugary chocolate. Basically it’s the best childrens holiday since Christmas!

Well, this year I decided to write about all the horrifying costumes the kids wore as they galloped to my door with their bags open wide, demanding treats or be faced with trickery most foul. unfortunately I live on a busy street (akin to a highway really) with no streetlights! so, we don’t really get a lot of trick-or-treaters. Mainly just neighbors and the occasional kid who just doesn’t care about safety.

Point is, this is a shorter list than I expected it would be! However, here is the list anyway! I had a visit from the following monstrosities! A princess, A pirate girl, A boy wearing a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt and a Cowboy hat(I’m not sure if he was supposed to be a Dallas Cowboy or just a normal cowboy honestly), A Unicorn…Wait..Sorry..a RAINBOW Unicorn, A lumberjack, a generic Assassins Creed Assassin and for some reason a Snowman. I think it might have been that Snowman from the Disney movie “Frozen”, but since I am the last person alive on the planet who hasn’t seen it, I can’t say with any certainty.

Seriously though you guys, what the heck?!? When I was a kid we dressed up in spooky costumes! If not spooky, at least a monster! It was all about the Ghosts, Ghouls, Goblins and Gargoyles! Now it seems to have been replaced with “Who can be the cutest???”

Oh god! I never wanted to be one of those people who ever said “When I was a kid…” and lookit what you did to me Halloween?! You forced my hand! Forced me to play the old man card! Yanno, when you start throwing that phrase around you are only a few years away from peeking out your blinds and yelling at neighborhood children to get off your lawn!
