What happened to the magic of Halloween? When we as children got dressed up, put on our make-up, and went out to see who could get the most candy? Now we find ourselves competing to be the "sluttyest" bumble bee, or nurse, or doctor, or even a slutty "construction worker". I mean really, what's the point?
Take a look around you today, you don't need halloween to be these things. As I was driving home from work last night, watching all the girls in their Scantily clad costumes walk to the parties, I realized that this is no longer "dressing up" it's definitely dressing down.
While some people go out and spend big money on these Barely costumes, others just take some underwear from their closet, throw in a pair of ears and a tail and claim to be the animal of their choice. Seriously? What happened to being a little kid, going out and buying a sweat suit, drawing whiskers on, ears and a tail and really being an animal?
Halloween turns the most conservative girls into something you would never understand. It questions morals, decisions, and ethics.
YOu may be thinking "oh shut up" but I know. I was a "slutty" soldier last year, and I just realized, why? Who am I trying to impress? Do I really want the love of my life to say they met me while i was dressed as a "slutty soldier"? NO, so this year, I'm a fairy. NO, I'm not a slutty fairy, my dress covers well passed my butt cheeks, my make up will be like tinker bell, and I will feel good about myself the next day.
I will walk home tonight having had the best night ever. Fun with my friends, a dance party, and costume contest. A caramel apple bar, scary movies, and true fun. I will return home sober, remembering every aspect of my night, and having no regrets.
I respect myself too much to become one of these girls. I, tonight will travel back in time, to my childhood, putting the magic back in Halloween.
